Flats and maisonettes

I want to install a satellite dish for my flat

Planning Permission

In certain circumstances, you will need to apply for planning permission to install a satellite dish on your flat or maisonette.

Read more about planning permission relating to satellite dishes1.

If you are a leaseholder you may need to obtain permission from the landlord, freeholder or management company.

If your flat is a listed building you will need listed building consent and you should contact your local planning authority for advice before you start work. Works to a listed building that affect its special historic character without consent is a criminal offence.
