Hi I live in an area where the permitted development was taken away as part of the consent to Bovis building the estate. In 2005 with approved planning I had a traditional conservatory built to the rear of my house. I now wish to replace the aging polycarbonate roof with a light weight insulated tiled one. A initial email to planning suggest I have to obtain fresh planning at the cost of £206 plus drawings flood assessments etc. Is this correct to insulate a roof to have to go through all the planning again ? Any advice appreciated.

Due to the removal of PD rights, the alteration would require Planning. When the applicator for the conservatory was approved, there would have been a Planning condition that stated the development has to be carried out in accordance with the approved drawing(s). Therefore, any deviation from that would require Planning.

It’s not something that the LPA would refuse but purely a formality. Your other option is to carry out the works, wait four years and submit a Lawful Development Certificate application. There is obviously a risk to this and you may now be on the LPA’s radar.
