Part 2: Minor operations to a property or land
The GPDO covers minor changes to a property or land – this could be any property and not necessarily residential under Schedule 2, Part 2.
This might be a house, a field, a school, a business. In fact these permitted development rights for minor operations could apply to any type of property.
Any of these permitted developments could be withdrawn via a restriction on the building usually through a previous planning application or via restrictions in a conservation area etc. or an Article 4 affecting the area.
Note that further permitted development rights for dwellings exist in Part 1 and covers items such as extensions, dormers, porches, outbuildings, driveways, chimneys and satellite dishes. Part 14 covers renewable energy items such as solar panels and air source heat pumps.
For further alterations around the home or work, both minor and large, see our common projects section.
This section is broken down into 7 sub-sections.
