Apply for planning permission

See if you need planning permission before you make improvements.

You should use this page if:

  • You are unsure whether you need planning permission for work you want to carry out
  • Building work has been carried out and you would like to find out whether planning permission or building regulation consent should have been in place.

You can only apply to us for planning permission if the property is outside the Lake District National Park boundary. If it is inside, you will need to apply to the Lake District National Park Authority.
