Will I need Planning Permission for my Pergola

One concern when adding a pergola to your terrace may be the worry of needing planning permission. From our experience, very few verandas and garden rooms require planning as they can be carried out under you Permitted Development rights (PD).

There are some occasions when PD has been restricted or removed, these include Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas, and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is not always the case, for example some conservation restrictions might only be to the front of the house, and we can check for you.

Flats and Maisonettes do not have PD rights and will require planning permission.

On the rare occasions where planning is required for the addition of a pergola, our experts with years of planning experience and very high success rates offer a survey and planning service.
