Here at XL Planning we have successfully handled plenty of these types of applications; whether it’s the erection of a new industrial building, or the erection of an extension to an existing building.
In 2010 existing rules were altered so that most businesses are able to develop on-site industrial units without the need for planning permission, by classing these new builds or alterations as permitted development which, as long as the development remains within the curtilage area of the site, can be started by anyone. If you have any queries as to whether your proposed developments are permitted, or if you require planning, we would be happy to help.
