Do I need Planning Permission for a Satellite,TV or Radio Antenna?

Satellite,TV and Radio Antenna Planning Permission

Before purchasing an antenna or having an engineer come install one on your property, it is important to know whether you need planning permission, listed building consent, or permission from the landlord or owner.

You are responsible for placing antennas in the appropriate position.

Under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, you have a general permission to install antennas up to a specific size on property without the need to apply for planning permission. This general permission depends on your house type and area.

Planning legislation divides buildings into four categories:

Houses and buildings up to 15 metres high

Unless your property  is in a designated area, you do not need to apply for planning permission to install an antenna on your property, as long as:

  • there will be no more than two antennas on the property overall. (These may be on the front or back of the building, on the roof, attached to the chimney, or in the garden)
  • if you are installing a single antenna, it is not more than 100 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • if you are installing two antennas, one is not more than 100 centimetres in any linear dimension, and the other is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • the cubic capacity of each individual antenna is not more than 35 litres
  • an antenna fitted onto a chimney stack is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension
  • an antenna mounted on the roof only sticks out above the roof when there is a chimney-stack. In this case, the antenna should not stick out more than 60 centimetres above the highest part of the roof, or above the highest part of the chimney stack, whichever is lower.

Any work which does not meet all these requirements will require planning permission.

Houses and buildings up to 15m high in designated areas

If your house (or the building in which you live) is in a designated area, you do not need to apply for planning permission to install an antenna on your property, as long as:

  • there will be no more than two antennas on the property overall
  • if you are installing a single antenna, it is not be more than 100 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • if you are installing two antennas, one is not more than 100 centimetres in any linear dimension, and the other is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • the cubic capacity of each individual antenna is not more than 35 litres
  • an antenna fitted onto a chimney stack is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension
  • an antenna mounted on the roof only sticks out above the roof when there is a chimney-stack. In this case, the antenna should not stick out more than 60 centimetres above the highest part of the roof, or above the highest part of the chimney stack, whichever is lower.
  •  an antenna is not installed on a chimney, wall, or a roof slope which faces onto, and is visible from, a road or a Broads waterway.

Any work which does not meet all these requirements will require planning permission.

Buildings 15 metres high or more

Unless your building is in a designated area, you do not need to apply for planning permission to install a dish or other antenna on your property, as long as:

  • there will be no more than four antennas on the building overall
  • the size of any antenna is not more than 130 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • the cubic capacity of each individual antenna is not more than 35 litres
  • an antenna fitted onto a chimney stack is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension
  • an antenna mounted on the roof does not stick out above the roof more than 300 centimetres above the highest part of the roof

Any work which does not meet all these requirements will require planning permission.

Buildings 15 metres high or more in designated areas

If your building is in a designated area, you do not need to apply for planning permission to install an antenna on your property, as long as:

  • there will be no more than four antennas on the building overall
  • the size of any antenna is not more than 130 centimetres in any linear dimension (not including any projecting feed element, reinforcing rim, mounting and brackets)
  • the cubic capacity of each individual antenna is not more than 35 litres
  • an antenna fitted onto a chimney stack is not more than 60 centimetres in any linear dimension;an antenna mounted on the roof does not stick out above the roof more than 300 centimetres above the highest part of the roof
  • aan antenna is not installed on a chimney, wall, or a roof slope which faces onto, and is visible from, a road or a Broads waterway.

Any work which does not meet all these requirements will require planning permission.

Antenna for Flats

If you live in a flat, the above limits refer to the building as a whole and not to each separate flat.
If the number of dishes or antennas installed on the building has already reached the maximum allowed, you will need planning permission for further installations.
In this case, you may want to discuss with other residents the possibility of a shared system.

Before buying or renting a radio antenna, satellite, or TV antenna it is important that you check whether you will require planning permission to erect the items or not. Do I need planning permission for a satellite, TV or radio antenna is not just a question you should ask yourself, it is something that you need to do some research on.

Make sure before erecting any of these items that you check to see if you require consent from your listing agent or the landlord or owner of your piece of property. It is up to you to ensure that the antenna that you will be placing on your home is set up in an appropriate manner.

For homes and other buildings that are up to fifteen metres high, you will not need to obtain satellite, TV and radio antenna planning permission. As long as the additional device is installed properly, according to building regulations you will not need to get any additional permissions.

If the building that you reside in is in a designated area, you will not need to receive satellite, TV and radio antenna planning permission either. Of course, just like with other types of buildings that are not in designated areas, it is up to you to ensure that the building regulations for setting up one of these devices is adhered to.
