Do I need planning permission to install a solar systems?


Planning permission may be required from you local authority in some cases, depending on where you live. Very often solar panels are deemed to be permitted development if less than 200mm pround of the roof. However local authorities have the powers to override this locally, in which case a planning application will be required, as is also the case for new buildings. Also be careful in National Parks, conservation areas and in listed buildings, where planning regulations are must tighter. In any case always check with your local planning authority who can quickly tell you.
