You will need Planning Permission and need to apply for it if your property doesn’t fall under permitted development. Your Local Authorities regulate the development and use of land through local policy guides, government guidance and statutory legislation. It is hard to tell what you can and cannot do as there are a lot of factors to take into consideration.
Permitted Development rules do not apply if your property is located within a Designated Area’ (e.g. Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or Conversation Area) or has a Listed Building Status. There is nothing to stop you from applying for Planning Permission, but you will need scale drawings of plans, elevations, a section through the building and its relation to surrounding properties.
