Planning System in France

Thursday 05 April 2012

Some important changes have been introduced to the planning system in France, so we have taken the opportunity to update our comprehensive guide.

The main changes are:

  • Greater freedom to build without the need to submit a planning application;
  • Simplification of the calculation of 'habitable space';
  • Rationalisation of the system of planning taxes;
  • Introduction of new forms for obtaining authorisation for works.

These and other changes have all been incorporated in our latest free guide to the planning system, links to which you can find below.
