Domestic planning services

As with all building works, the owner of the property or land is ultimately responsible for complying with the relevant planning rules and building regulations. It is quite possible that planning permission may be needed and building regulation approval not, equally building regulation approval may be required and planning permission may not. The general advice is to always CHECK before STARTING any work.
