Can I fit uPVC doors in a conservation area?

Before replacing doors in a conservation area, you will need to speak to your local Planning Authority and Building Control. It’s important not to do anything until you have advised them of your plans. If the local Planning Authority have enforced an Article 4 directive, a planning application may be required for replacement uPVC Doors or bi fold doors, as it cannot be done under ‘permitted development’ in the usual way.
