ePetition details

We the undersigned petition the council to Add to the pre-planning web page general guidance as to whether or not planning permission would be needed for home improvements.

In light of the need to improve existing homes to reduce carbon footprint, many people will be looking for guidance as to whether planning permission will be needed for works such as
- adding external wall insulation
- adding solar panels
- air source (or other) heat pumps
- double glazing
The answers may need to be different for listed buildings and buildings in conservation areas.
Adding this up-front advice would help to remove barriers to carrying out such home improvements and help home owners avoid the £80.34 fee payable to find out if planning permission is required.

This ePetition ran from 29/10/2021 to 26/11/2021 and has now finished.
