Reassesment of Residential Planning Permissons

I think the main question is……

Why do I need anyones permission to replace my windows, move an internal wall, to take up the soil in my garden and put a driveway down,  Why do I need permisson to do anything to my home when I own the propery????

I think this needs to to be re-evalutated, I mean do I have to ask a car manufactures permission to change the windscreen, or replace the wheels, NO why? becuase I brought the car and it no longer has anything to do with the manufacturer.

If i purchase my home, I own it, not the local council.

I Believe that for most works that need to be done to a home shouldn't need permission from the local authority, However I do think that some kind of survey or assessment could be needed for certain structial modification to ensure the work is safe to carry out.

Why is this idea important?

Home Sharing for Senior Citizens

Allow resident home-owners to share their properties without the requirement to turn their homes into Houses in Multiple Occupation.

As a single woman I have shared my large, six-bedroom, victorian house for over 25 years.

Changes in the Housing Act mean that my property is now classed as a H.M.O. if I wish to share with more than two other people.

Also make it easier for people to turn their homes into flats.  This would allow the Senior Citizen to live on the ground floor, creating a flat or flats above, providing a solution and income for the ageing and accommodation for the young.
