If you live in a conservation area, you will need planning permission for relevant demolition in a conservation area to do the following:
- Demolish a building with a volume of more than 115 cubic metres. There are a few exceptions - you can get further information from your council.
- To demolish a gate, fence, wall or railing over 1 metre high next to a highway (including a public footpath or bridleway) or public open space; or over 2 metres high elsewhere.
Even if your proposals do not include the work mentioned above you should still check if an application is required.
If your application is refused, granted with conditions or not determined within 8 weeks of it being validated by the council then you have the right to appeal to the Secretary of State.
