The following Planning practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development Order) 1995, SI 1995/418 (in Wales) and the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015, SI 2015/596 (in England) (together the GPDO) grant rights to carry out certain types of development, without the need to apply for planning permission. See Practice Notes: Permitted development in England and Permitted development in Wales.
The GPDO was amended in England on 6 April 2008 and 15 April 2015 (in relation to domestic micro-generation equipment) and 1 December 2011 (in relation to non-domestic micro-generation equipment) to extend the scope of the permitted development rights to a wider range of renewable energy technologies.
Permitted development rights were amended separately in Wales on 1 September 2009, 18 June 2012, 5 October 2012 and 1 April 2019. Although they operate in the same way as in England, there are differences in the scope of the permitted development rights in England and Wales.
The changes were introduced to address the urgent challenges of climate change and to secure energy supplies through greater use
