Key Changes to Solar PV Planning + PD Rights

View descriptionShare

Rob discusses the recent changes introduced by the government regarding planning permission and permitted development for solar panels. He explains that homeowners can now install solar panels on their roofs without going through the lengthy process of planning permission, but only under certain circumstances. However, there are limitations to this new rule, as it only applies to flat roofs, which not everyone has. Additionally, even if you have a flat roof, the panels still need to be angled correctly for maximum efficiency. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The government has introduced new changes to solar panels regarding planning permission and permitted development.
  • Homeowners can put solar panels on their roofs without planning permission under certain circumstances.
  • Solar panel installation is VAT free, which was introduced in the 2022 spring budget.
  • The new permitted development rules only apply to flat roofs, which may not be suitable for everyone.
  • Dwellings with pitched roofs still need to comply with Class A rules for general permitted development, with restrictions on the protrusion and height of the panels.

BEST MOMENTS

"Under permitted development rights, homeowners will be able to put solar panels on their roofs without having to go through planning, but only in certain circumstances." 

"It does make me laugh that the government do claim these changes have been introduced to make it smooth for solar panels to be installed. But in reality, they're doing a little bit but not doing enough." 

"Permitted development rights now mean that if you have a flat roof, then you don't have to go through planning, you can just go through permitted development, which is great." 

"I recommend Make My House Green. They do nationwide solar panel installation."
