Is my Roof Suitable?
In England, the installation of solar photovoltaic panels is considered ‘general permitted development’ and planning permission is not generally required. The only exceptions are generally if your property is a listed building or is situated within a conservation area. Even in these circumstances, installations are normally allowed provided certain guidelines are followed.
We will advise you during the survey whether or not we consider you require planning permission and may check on your behalf beforehand. However, it is advisable for your own peace of mind and assurance to ask your local planning office if permission is required or not. Solar Voltaics cannot be held responsible for installations made without the appropriate planning permission.
You can check if your property is in a conservation area or is a listed building – your local authority will be able to provide further information.
If you do require planning permission this must be obtained before proceeding with the installation.
