Many demolition projects in Godalming and Guildford do not require prior approval, but it is important to bear in mind that new buildings will need planning permission.

Some instances when approval will be necessary include the demolition of:

  • Pubs & Drinking Establishments
  • Buildings in Conservation Areas
  • Structures as Part of Site Redevelopment
  • Buildings Where the Scale of Work Requires an Environmental Impact Assessment

Even if demolition falls within permitted development rights, you must get approval to demolish from your local planning authority, giving them at least six weeks' notice.
