I am planning to add larch wood cladding to the exterior of all of my house, it is currently rendered, it is not in a conservation area and is not a listed building, my question is do I need planning permission
Below is a quote from the government planning portal, the bit I am having trouble is :
“provided the materials are of a similar appearance to those used in the construction of the house”
If you live in a Conservation Area, a National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Broads, you will need to apply for planning permission before cladding the outside of your house with stone, artificial stone, pebble dash, render, timber, plastic or tiles.
Outside these areas, cladding may be carried out without having to first apply for planning permission provided the materials are of a similar appearance to those used in the construction of the house.
The house is a converted Chapel and is built of solid brick with a tiled roof, will they class timber as a similar appearance?
Many thanks, any help much appreciated.
