Hi
I am a landlord in a block of 6 and the flat roof and soffits all need renewing
Do I need planning permission and talk to the council about the materials and energy savings
I have been told I have to but when asked a couple of roofing companies they say don’t bother
There would be no change to the height or looks

I have some flats in a small block and we had some roofing replaced and fascias /soffits done during lockdown. No one suggested that we needed to discuss  it with the council,and one of the owners is the sort who knows about such things.

"When you need it

You’ll probably need planning permission if you want to:

    build something new
    make a major change to your building, such as building an extension
    change the use of your building"

"When you do not need it

Some building projects do not need planning permission. This is known as ‘permitted development rights’.

[...]

There are other projects that might not need planning permission - for example, projects that will have no impact on your neighbours or the environment."


I agree with your roofing companies.
