The vast majority of British homes do not require local authority planning permission to install roof panels to your home. With no hassle or red tape to work through, fitting solar panels to your roof simply requires a site survey and some information on your energy usage for us to assess the right system for you. You may require planning permission if your solar panel installation requires that they protrude more than 200mm from your roof. This is not a common requirement, so certainly should not deter you from making an enquiry with us.
Listed buildings, designated Conservation Areas or World Heritage sites are some of the exceptions to the no planning permission requirement. If you live in one of these areas or dwellings, you will need to contact your local authority before installation and obtain any necessary permissions before we can commence. The good news, though, is you could still have them fitted. However, planning permissions generally require that they must be fitted to a roof or area that isn’t visible from a road. It may also be necessary to contact your planning office if you live in an exceptionally tall property. Leaseholders may also need permission from their Landlord, Management Company or freeholder.
So not only do the majority of installations not require any local authority consent, they also do not need a bright sunny day to give you the benefits of solar powered energy.
With over 900,000 homes having already installed solar panels in the UK, and a whopping 93% satisfaction rate for solar panel systems, can you think of a better time for you to contact us for solar energy advice and a competitive installation quote for your property.
