    Is planning permission needed for an eco-friendly green roof?


    Do I need planning permission to build an eco-friendly green roof on a bungalow in the countryside? It is relatively isolated with no direct neighbouring properties (there is a farmer’s field on either side of my home).

    "You don't need planning permission but you should ask just in case but you don't need planning permission to do this but if you asked and have it all on paperwork then no one can say no to you about it thank you, Patrick"

    "Hi Carole. No, it doesn’t. You only need planning permission if it’s structural for example if you're planing to raise the height of your roof so need to lay extra brickwork etc."
