Do You Need London Basement Planning Permission?

While some basement work may fall underpermitted development rights, it’s always best to consult a basement planning permission specialist like OLBC. Local authorities impose unique requirements for each project, especially for listed buildings or if the basement construction may alter the property’s external appearance, such as adding a lightwell in the garden. Extensive structural engineering for a single or multi-level basement may also necessitate basement planning permission.
