Permitted development rights allow certain types of work to be undertaken without the need to apply for planning permission. It comes from the General Permitted Development Order, and these rights are given to you by Parliament that bypass your local authority.
When buying and selling property at auction, it can be helpful to understand what permitted development rights (PDRs) are available. This can allow you to add value to a property and improve it for living in, letting or selling.
MDP comments 'It’s important from the outset to make sure that you do have those permitted development rights. And in most cases, you do. But in a sizeable minority of cases, you may not.'

MDP will again be at the September show providing you with honest, professional planning advice. We'll also be hosting a planning surgery on Saturday at 1pm followed by a Q&A session.
The Show has a timetable packed full of informative and impartial talks, to help inspire your homebuilding plans. Alongside 200+ exhibitors within the NSBRC’s ‘Trade Village’, the ‘Professional Services Hub’ is the place to go for independent, expert advice from a range of specialists. You'll find a number of Architects and Designers, as well as experts on Planning, Project Management, Site Safety, Landscaping and more.
In the Build It Theatre, you will hear key topics being discussed including; finding land, budgeting, planning and the new government backed ‘Help to Build’ scheme.
This ‘must-attend’ event is the perfect opportunity for you to be inspired, gather information and talk to genuine experts who will be delighted to help answer your questions and offer advice. If you are considering (or just starting) a new build, renovating a tired property or simply looking to create new space then we will have talks, tours and advice tailored to you.
One highlight of the show will be the new ‘cost of living surgery’ exploring how we can we mitigate against rising energy costs, and other increasing costs, in our homes. A range of experts explore the technologies and methods available to us, including; improving insulation, air source heat pumps, solar panels, electric vehicles and more.
