Part 14: Renewable Energy

 

The General Permitted Development Order (GPDO) allows for renewable energy on both domestic and not-domestic properties without planning permission. 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.

In addition Part 2 and covers items such as gates, fences, exterior painting, charging points, driveways and CCTV

Also take a look at our common projects section here on Planning Geek for more ideas.
