Permitted development rights are a national grant of planning permission allowing certain development to take place without having to make a planning application. They support housing delivery, help householders improve their homes and facilitate infrastructure, including improvements to telecommunications. The Department publishes data for each local authority area on the number of applications and permissions. No assessment has been made of the effect of the use of permitted development rights in Chipping Barnet.
