PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT 

FINANCE 

Permitted development is an allowance made available to property developers and landlords to execute certain developments without having to obtain planning permissions.

These developments typically include:

Change of Use

Permitted development also allows developers to enforce change of use in certain cases. For example, existing office space can be converted into residential space. Similarly, barns and agricultural spaces can be converted into dwellings. This, however, requires a basic no objection certificate from the local council in certain districts.

Extensions

Extensions that do not affect the structural integrity of the building are permitted. There exist, however, certain limitations to the extent of such extensions.

Outbuildings

Permitted development rights allow for the development of vacant spaces subject to certain limitations. The development area should be no larger than 50% of the original vacant space. In some districts, this limit is brought down to 30%.
