There are some building projects thatdon’t require planning permission due to what’s known as ‘permitted developmentrights’.Theseinclude:  Some industrial premises or warehouses  This isn’t automatic, however, there are a number of limits and conditions in place.  Some outdoor signs and advertisements  Again, there are specific rules set in place.  Demolition projects  Demolition projects must be approved by your LPA. These are the major projects that don’t typically require business planning permission, but other exceptions can be made. It is always best to check with your LPA. The other major thing to consider is community rights. If your building benefits the local community and is supported by them, it is possible that standard planning permission might not be required. Community Right to Build will let your community grant permission itself under certain circumstances.
