Most external building work will require planning permission to ensure that your neighbours are not adversely affected, and vice versa.
We recommend contacting the planning officer at Winchester City Council (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the earliest opportunity as it could save you money.

Advisory Note For Residents Who Are Considering Replacing Their Garage Roof.
Winchester City Council Planning Department have advised the following:-
‘If the change of roof was a ‘like-for-like’ change; where a similar visual appearance is maintained (regardless of material) then planning permission would not be required as it would not be deemed as development.
Should the owners wish to change the appearance and/or height of the roofs, then planning permission would need to be sought from the planning department.
