Permitted Development and Flats or Apartments - Oct. 1st 2008.

Flats now benefit from limited permitted development rights but only for satellite and other antennas.

Most of these permitted development rights do not apply to flats or listed buildings, and the limits are more restrictive for houses in conservation areas.

For many modern houses, conditions of the original planning permission for the house remove some or all of these rights.

For the purposes of permitted development a dwelling house does not include a building containing one or more flats, or a flat contained within such as building.

There are currently no Permitted Development Rights (PDR) for flats or buildings containing flats (other than in relation to satellite and other antennas) where the more intensive levels of occupation and different property ownership arrangements could lead to particularly problematic outcomes.
