just been on a site for permission and found this

 

Planning Permission

 

New rules apply to paving over your front garden under regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008.

 

Elsewhere around your house there are no restrictions on the area of land which you can cover with hard surfaces at, or near, ground level.

 

However, significant works of embanking or terracing to support a hard surface might need a planning application.

 

If you live in a listed building, you will need listed building consent for any significant works whether internal or external.

 

Please note: the permitted development allowances described here apply to houses not flats, maisonettes or other buildings. View guidance on flats and maisonettes here.

Building Regulations

 

Generally a new driveway or patio area does not require building regulations approval.

 

However, you will need to make sure that any alterations do not make access to the dwelling any less satisfactory than it was before. So, for example, changing levels to introduce steps where none existed before would be a contravention of the regulations.

 

 

its from this site

and from what ive read it seems to say that you dont need permision aslong as its done to a decent standard and doesnt effect access to your property???

I don't think it is - I work in this industry and I've found the planning officers only too happy to come out and take a look and give free advice.
