Do I need planning permission?
Certificate of Lawful Development
If you require a formal decision as to whether a proposed use or development is lawful then you should submit an application for a Certificate of Lawful Development (fee for this is £86).
Further guidance is available for Lawful Development Certificates - a user's guide (gov.uk) from Communities and Local Government, and an application can be submitted online through the Planning Portal (planning portal.gov.uk).
