A Guide to Doing Work around the House

Created by the OPR (The Office of the Planning Regulator). This leaflet is a practical guide to what work you can do around your house without needing to apply for planning permission. It sets out certain conditions that you must
observe. This leaflet is not a definitive legal interpretation of planning law.

For more information, you should consult with your local authority (city or county council), which for its planning functions, is referred to as the planning authority.
