Householder Development

Whether you need planning permission to alter or extend your property will depend on the size and position of what you want to do. Some alterations and extensions, particularly to houses, can often be carried out without the need for planning permission. This is known as 'permitted development'.

If you are unsure whether you need planning permission please fill in the 'Do I need planning permission form - Householder', to the right of this page and we will check this for you.   There is a charge for this service of £30, including VAT.

Please complete the form and return it (plus the fee) to the address at the top of the page. Alternatively, email this information to planning@nelincs.gov.uk.  Payment can be made by cheque, payable to North East Lincolnshire Council, or by debit card by contacting 01472 313131.  If paying by card, please quote the development address or enquiry number if you have this.

We aim to respond to you within 10 working days.

Non-Domestic Development

Most alterations to business premises do need planning permission, including:

  • alterations to shop fronts;
  • external security shutters or grilles.

For a project other than the above, if you are unsure whether you need planning permission please fill in a 'Do I need planning permission form - Non Domestic', to the right of this page. The information gathered will help a planning officer in deciding whether or not a planning application is required for your proposal.  There is a charge for this service of £30, including VAT.

Please complete the form and return it (plus the fee) to the address at the top of the page with a location plan which clearly identifies the boundary of the site. Alternatively, you can email this information to planning@nelincs.gov.uk .  Payment can be made by cheque, payable to North East Lincolnshire Council, or by debit card by contacting 01472 313131. If paying by card, please quote the development address or enquiry number if you have this.

You should receive a response within 10 working days.
