Solar Thermal - Is planning permission required?

You might be wondering if there is need for planning permission in order to have a solar system installed. In the majority of cases, it is generally considered as a ‘permitted development’ therefore planning is not required. However, there are a few restrictions and conditions which must be followed before the installation can take place. These limitations relate to issues such as size, if your home is a listed building for example or if your home is in an area of natural outstanding beauty (AONB).

To be absolutely sure, it is always good practice to check first with a local authority's planning officer.
