Other land or building consents
If you do not need to apply for planning permission, you may need other consents or approvals before you start work.
Party Wall Act
If the development involves:
- work on an existing wall shared with another property
- building on the boundary with a neighbouring property
- excavating near a neighbouring building
you must find out whether that work falls within the Party Wall Act 1996. If it does you must notify all affected neighbours.
If the development encroaches on land owned by others you need their consent. Planning permission does not authorise the use of another persons land; a permission can only be implemented with their consent.
