Some local authorities have special rules for conservation areas, but as a general rule of thumb, no, you do no require planning permission for a Juliet balcony.

As they can affect sight lines and neighbours’ privacy, ‘Walk-on balconies’ i.e. those with a platform where you can step out the building, generally do require planning permission.

Your local authority Planning or Building Control team will be able to give precise guidance, but if you have any follow-up questions about planning permission, feel free to email us directly using: [email protected].
