Home Improvements permission form

We will need to know in advance if you are considering doing more major works such as fitting a shower, installing a kitchen or changing windows.

We will discuss your plans with you and, if necessary, arrange for a technical officer to visit you before we make a decision.
If you have already made major changes or improvements to your home and did not get permission please contact us for advice.
