Planning permission for demolition
I’m demolishing my house, do I need Planning permission?
Most cases require you to apply for planning permission to knock down a building, with the exception of instances where the council has issued an article 4 direction restricting the permitted development rights which apply to demolition.
Damaged buildings, by fire, storm etc, are not automatically granted planning permission of the replacement structure, where demolition of any kind is being proposed, the council may request details of how you intend to carry out demolition and restoration procedures afterwards.
In these case it is suggested that an agent or owner of the land completes the prior approval application, which will outline measures and limitations of the site and application which should abided to for a successful planning application.
