Security Alarm Regulations

Security Alarm Regulations

The purpose of Security alarms is to act as a deterrent against crime. They can communicate with the police, fire departments, private security companies, and they’re on the list of things that people look for when searching for a new home. The demand for security alarms is increasing and they are a good investment to make, not least for peace of mind.

If you wish to install a burglar or other security alarm in your property, you are free to do so without planning permission, so long as your property is not listed, in which case you will likely require listed building consent.

Planning permission

Security alarm installation is classed as permitted development and you do not need to seek planning permission to install one. No matter how advanced your system is homeowners are permitted to install a security system that will further secure their home.

However, if your security system is to include an alarmed gate, you may require planning permission for the gate itself, unless it is to replace an existing gate. Your Local Planning Authority will be able to clarify any permission you may need with regards to this.

listed buildings

If you wish to install a security alarm in to your home, and that home is a listed building, you will require listed building consent from your Local Planning Authority to do so. It is a criminal offence to install a security alarm in a listed property without listed building consent. We recommend you contact your Local Planning Authority for further guidance.

CCTV

Security alarms and CCTV when combined can be a powerful deterrent against burglars. In general, you do not need planning permission to install a CCTV camera for security purposes, however this does not apply to listed buildings or buildings in a conservation area. It is highly likely that in the case of homes located in a conservation area that the Local Planning Authority will want to look at your plans. With regard to CCTV on listed property, you will need listed building consent.

For more information on security alarms and planning permission, please visit the Planning Portal.
