1. Do I need permission?

 

In general you do not need planning permission to replace windows in a conversation area such as within the Yorkshire Dales. However, it is strongly advisable to consult your local conservation officer.

Permission is required if the area has been designated an article 4 directive. This prevents window and door replacement without planning permission.

3. What help can I expect from my local conversation officer?

 

A Conservation Officer can provide helpful advice on the type and style of appropriate windows and can liaise with your glazing supplier to ensure an approved planning application.

 

 

Marlin Windows work closely with Conservation Officers to ensure window replacement is hassle free.

4. Can I replace wood with thermally efficient aluminium?

Historically, when local authorities have encouraged or stipulated using traditional materials i.e. wood frames which allows for thin frames to support light, thin glazing.

Modern glazing tends to be thick and heavy requiring thick frames to support it. However, recent developments in aluminium now mean that this is no longer the case which makes replica aluminium with it's associated benefits a viable alternative.
