Most developments will require the consent of the local council. You will either need Planning Permission or a certificate of lawfulness.
Some examples where planning permission is required:
Planning permission is not generally required, for changes to the interior of buildings, or for small alterations to the outside eg. the installation of telephone connections and alarm boxes. Exceptions may include buildings in a conservation area, a listed building or a building of heritage significance/importance.

If you go ahead with your development without the required permission, the local council that is the planning authority for your area may ask you to make a retrospective planning application and if not granted, may require you to put your development back to its original form. 4D Planning Consultants specialise in preparing and submitting retrospective planning applications, and offer our clients all the support needed through the planning process.
There are several factors - dependent a lot on your local authority plan, which will affect whether or not you need to apply for planning permission. Some of these considerations include:
4D Planning will be able to advise you whether you need planning, and if so, offer to help produce a convincing and professional application for submission to the local council. Assuming that planning permission is not required, 4D Planning will produce all the architectural drawings, existing and proposed to acquire a certificate of lawfulness from the local council so that building works can commence.
