Heat Pump Planning Permission

Wales & Northern Ireland

Air source heat pump installations in Wales and Northern Ireland require planning permission.

England & Scotland

In England and Scotland air source heat pump installations may be considered Permitted Development, in which case you will not need planning permission. However, because the criteria are complex, it is recommended that you check with your local authority planning office.

England

From 1st December 2011, domestic air source heat pump systems will be classed as Permitted Development provided they comply with the following:

  1. there is no wind turbine at the property
  2. the external unit is less than 0.6 m3 in size
  3. the unit is more than one metre from the edge of the householder's property
  4. it is not on a pitched roof
  5. it is not near the edge of a flat roof

The above is not an exhaustive list and our recommendation is that you check with your local authority planning department.  The installation will need to meet additional criteria if it is in a conservation area or World Heritage Site etc. Click here for further information: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2011/2056/made
