Repairing Fascias

Repairing Fascias (or replacing)

If you wish to carry out fascia maintenance on your roof or replace fascia boards, you do not need to seek planning permission to do so. Fascia replacement, repair and maintenance is permitted development, however if you live in a listed building, it is likely you will require listed building consent from your Local Planning Authority.

Planning permission

As noted, you do not have to apply for planning permission to carry out any work on your roof’s fascia boards, although, exceptions apply to homes that are in conservation areas or homes that are listed.

Conservation areas

If you live in a house in a conservation area, such as a National Park, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Broads, it is recommended that you consult with your Local Planning Authority about any work you plan to do to your roofing fascia. The council may have certain limitations that they impose for such projects – if they do, the best way to find this out is to talk to them.

Listed buildings

If your home is listed, you will likely require listed building consent to carry out any work on your roofing fascias, especially if your project is extensive.
It is a criminal offence to alter any part of a listed building without listed building consent where it is required.

Building regulations

Building regulations do not apply to fascias, therefore Building Control do not need to be notified of any work carried out. Having said that, it is important that any replacement fascias are installed in such a way that they do not reduce ventilation to the roof. If they do reduce ventilation this can lead to a loss of structural integrity in the future as condensation builds up and affects timber.
