Flat Roof Solar Panel Installation: Planning Permission Guidelines

Updated Permitted Development Rules for 2023 for Flat Roofs

Navigating the regulations for solar panel installation on flat roofs has become significantly easier thanks to new rules announced by the UK government in November 2023. Sheerwater Solar is here to guide you through these changes and ensure that your transition to solar energy is smooth and compliant with the latest legal standards.
