Do You Need Planning Permission? 11 December 2003

The Department of Local Government and the Environment is reminding all property owners, tenants and suppliers of the need to obtain planning permission before replacing windows and doors in certain buildings on the Island.

Planning permission is required to replace any windows and doors in

  • Buildings built before 1921
  • Buildings in conservation areas
  • Registered buildings (registered building approval is also required)

Advice may be sought from the Departmentís Planning and Conservation staff on the need for replacement and/or the suitability of any proposed replacements before applying for planning permission.

Financial assistance may also be available through the historic buildings conservation grant scheme for properties in the above categories, in respect of the cost of repair and refurbishment of existing traditional windows or towards suitable replacement windows where a need for change can be justified.
