What Happens if I Build without Planning Permission?
It’s no secret that the UK’s planning system is a maze of laborious and complex processes. Without the correct knowledge and experience it can also become an expensive journey. Therefore, we can almost understand the temptation to proceed with your project, bypassing the system altogether. However, such action has disastrous and far more expensive consequences. In this blog we aim to answer the question; What Happens if I Build without Planning Permission?
Ignore Now, Pay Later
No matter how big or small your project is, its vital that you ensure you have the rights or permission to proceed. The consequences of not doing so can range from enforced demolishment and hefty fines to a potential prison sentence! Therefore, no matter how much planning permission may delay your project, bypassing the system is not an option. At the very least it will end up costing you more and delay your project.
