Do you need planning permission for a sewage treatment plant? – Video Transcription

Mark Ward:

“Planning permission is not generally required as long as the tank itself is being installed in what’s classed as the residential curtilage. So as long as it’s in the garden or the property boundary, then the system can be installed under what’s called a building notice. If the tank is to be installed in agricultural land, for example, or outside of the residential curtilage, then that would attract planning permission.”
