I follow a few blogs and one of them is the Planning Portal director’s blog.  For those who don’t know the Planning Portal is a central website/gov IT project that allows for the submission of Planning applications electronically to your local authority whilst also holding lots of information and news relating to planning.   I personally think it’s a great site/IT project that shows that government IT projects can work.

Anyway they’ve released a new mini-guide to help, interested parties figure ou what exactly they can be build under ‘Permitted Development’ (i.e. no Planning Permission required) in the UK.

The announcing blog post can be found here
the link to the miniguide is found here.

The main page for the Planning Portal is this http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/
