A Guide to the Planning Process
This document gives an overview of the Planning System as it affects the installation of windows and doors in England (Scotland and Wales have separate regulations).
The most relevant Acts of Parliament are the Planning Act of 1990 and the National Planning Policy Framework, 2012.
The latter Act reflects a greater recognition of the need to ‘conserve’ rather than ‘preserve’ and to balance wider benefits of environmental, social and economic considerations when making decisions on heritage assets.
