Part 14: Renewable Energy
The General Permitted Development Order (GPDO) allows for renewable energy on both domestic and not-domestic properties. Part 14 allows for this. This includes solar panels, ground source heat pumps, wind turbines, air source heat pumps and more.
In addition to this section on renewable energy, further permitted development rights exist for houses in Part 1 and covers items such as extensions, dormers, porches, outbuildings, driveways, chimneys and satellite dishes.
Also take a look at our common projects section here on Planning Geek for more ideas.
The various Classes within Part 14 for the installation or alteration of renewable energy are as follows:
Class B – Stand-alone solar equipment on domestic premises
Class C – Ground source heat pumps on domestic premises
Class D – Water source heat pumps on domestic premises
Class E – Flue for biomass heating system on domestic premises
Class F – Flue for combined heat and power on domestic premises
Class G – Air source heat pumps on domestic premises
Class H – Wind turbine on domestic premises
