Fascias

 

Do I Need Planning Permission?

Maintenance of fascia such as replacement or painting generally does not require planning permission.
However, if you live in a listed building or designated area (conservation area, national park, area of outstanding natural beauty) you should check with your local planning authority before carrying out any work.

 

Do I Need Building Regulations?

Replacing fascia board or soffit will not normally need building regulations approval.
You are advised to check that the replacement work does not reduce the ventilation provided to the roof void as this could cause condensation to occur within the roof void, which can then lead damp on the timbers. If the existing system has vents installed a similar system will need to be maintained.


The replacement of fascia and soffit boards will not normally require approval under the Building Regulations.If you are unsure about whether you are required to comply, you may wish to contact your local Building Control body.

 

Fascias in a Conservation Area:

If your property is in a Conservation Area please check with your local planning authority

before carrying out any work.It is absolutely necessary to obtain the required conservation area consent prior to beginning any works. Going ahead without this may result in a fine or imprisonment, or both.

 

Fascias in Flats or Maisonettes: Please check with your local authority prior to starting any works.
Note - If you are a leaseholder you may need to get permission from your landlord, freeholder or management company.
