Do I need planning permission?

In most cases, no. Domestic solar panel installations are considered ‘permitted developments’ and don’t require planning permission unless:

  • you live in a listed building
  • your home’s in a conservation area or an area of outstanding natural beauty. (Panels are permitted in a conservation area as long as they’re not installed on a wall or roof that fronts a main highway)
  • the panels protrude more than 200mm from the roof. We always fit within this limit.

If you’re unsure about permitted developments, please visit the Government’s planning portal or book a call back and get free advice from us.
