Permitted Development Rights: Non-Domestic Solar Panels and Domestic Air Source Heat Pumps

Permitted Development Rights: Non-Domestic Solar Panels and Domestic Air Source Heat Pumps

Monday, June 22, 2015

ISBN: 9781785444838

Consultation on proposals for expanding the range of situations in which non-domestic solar panels and domestic air source heat pumps can be installed without first requiring planning permission to be applied for.

Executive Summary

This consultation paper sets out proposals that increase the number of situations in which solar panels on non-domestic buildings (those that are not homes) and air source heat pumps on domestic buildings (homes) can go ahead without first having to seek planning permission through making a planning application to the planning authority for the area.

Permitted development rights help provide certainty about what development can proceed. Permitted development rights can reduce costs for applicants and building owners by removing the fees and costs associated with the planning application process.
