Home renovations differ from home extensions and new homes in that they do not always require council approval. As long as there are no structural changes to the property, or alterations to windows and doors, generally council permission is not required.

For instance in most cases bathroom and kitchen renovations are exempt development. It is however best to confirm with your local council if any work you are proposing needs approval. Home renovations are a great way to not only improve your house for general living, but also to add value to your property.
