Solar panels and air conditioning

Under the terms of covenants, all Moor Park properties, the approval of the Company is required for all building works, including solar panels and air conditioning units

Solar panels

Photovoltaic (PV) roof panels require Company approval and this will only be granted where the panel installation is not visible from the road. The reason for this restriction is to protect the street scene within the Conservation Area. In most cases, there is no requirement for planning permission from Three Rivers District Council for PV installation.

Air conditioning units

For air conditioning units, permission is generally granted if the units are mounted at ground level so that they are not visible from the road or from neighbouring properties and are screened for noise. Approval by the Company under the covenants and planning permission from Three Rivers District Council is required. A number of air conditioning units have been installed without planning permission and the Council takes enforcement action to have them removed where and when this breach is brought to their attention.
