Changing window after planning

    Hi guys,

    I had planning accepted with a window at the side of the house that I now want to remove and replace with a skylight (which wasn't in planning). Is this ok or would I have to reapply for planning with these changes? Thanks.

    What was the opinion of whoever submitted the planning ?

    I haven't asked him yet as tbh I don't trust the guy and I assume he will tell me it's not possible, as it means less work for him.

    Assuming this is a first floor window it may be a fire escape and therefore necessary.

    No it's a window on the ground floor to allow light in but I think a skylight might be better.

    Can you show a drawing?
    Generally a sky light on a ground floor extension to the rear would be exempt.
