Building works that do not need approval
There are a number of common improvements that do not require approval, such as:
- all work completed by a member of a Competent Person Scheme
- most conservatories, car ports, detached garages and porches
- typical garden sheds
- garden fences and walls
This is again not a complete list and if you’re unsure whether approval is needed, it is always best to contact Building Control.
