PLANNING - If you live in a house, you can make certain types of minor changes to your home without needing to apply for planning permission, these are called 'Permitted Development Rights'. There are also different requirements if your house is a listed building. If you build something which needs planning without obtaining permission first you may be forced to put things right later. See planning portal - www.planningportal.gov.uk.
