Importance of Planning Law in Property Alterations

Planning law ensures you don't change your property or build a new one without considering the wider community or obtaining permission from local planning authorities. You need to know what these legal controls are. Planning laws are complex. If you want to change the use of your property or your gardens, you will need to do this properly. If you wish to object to changes made by your neighbours, there is a way to do this, too. And for anyone living in a listed building or conservation area, you need to know what laws apply.

Objecting to changes by your neighbours

Although living in a close community can be wonderful, it can be challenging sometimes when your neighbours are making changes to their property that you believe may have a negative impact on your own. In such moments, it's important to remember that you have rights and options available to address your concerns.
