Do I need planning permission to change my windows and doors?

You do not usually need to apply for planning permission if your project falls within the following category.

* repairs, maintenance, and minor improvements, repainting window and door frames

* installation of new windows and doors that are of a similar profile and style.

BUT check for other factors

Such as:

Conservation Area

Article 4

Other planning constraints that may be on your property.

Article 4 and windows and doors.

What is Article 4?

When changing Windows and Doors be aware of the Article 4 Direction which withdraws the permitted development rights of the property. This means you will need to seek advice/ obtain planing permission before making changes that would normally fall under permitted development.

You can use the map below to see if your property falls into the Article 4 category
