French doors - planning permission

I live in a ground floor victorian conversion flat and would like to replace one of my back windows with french doors. I understand I need to comply with building regs in terms of the type of doors I fit, but am I right in thinking I don't need planning permission for the work? (I don't live in a conservation area). Any advice greatly appreciated - thanks.

depending were you live if you go to your concil and ask for a form for fitting windows and doors the cost is around £65 to £95 thay will call and take a look before thay are fitted and after thay are fitted you do not have to be fensa reg
as long as thay are fitted right and the right glass you will be fine it cost less if you use a fenca company and thay can do all the paper work for you hope this helps

You shouldn`t need planning permission, but you'll need regs unless you use a FENSA company.

you will not need planning permission,a good builder should let you know what size catnic you will need and glass for doors will need to be safety glass.hope this helps
