Planning Permission Required to Demolish Building

In a landmark judgement the Court of Appeal has ruled that planning permission is now required to demolish a building. Further, where that demolition is likely to have significant effects on the environment an Environmental Impact Assessment will also be required.

If you are considering a scheme where it is proposed to carry out demolition in advance of obtaining planning permission for redevelopment then this decision will affect you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for advice or if you have any queries regarding the implications of this ruling.
