The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, Part 1, Schedule 2 allows for dwellinghouses to do a number of building works without planning permission. However flats and maisonettes do not benefit from this right.
The reason being is that Parliament want Local Authorities to have control over what can be developed for flats and maisonettes.
Not to worry, although you can’t do this under permitted development, you can apply for planning permission. With our experienced planning officers, we can complete a pre-assessment to check the likeness of whether planning permission would be approved, before spending unnecessary time and money on an application that has no chance.
