Generally, you need not take any approvals for any minor renovations and low impact work to be done in your house unless they involve any structural changes.
With kitchen renovations, there are two areas to keep in consideration. Firstly, is kitchen changing structurally for example removing an adjoining wall between your kitchen and your neighbourhood?
The second main concern in any kitchen renovation in if you are not increasing the fitting of sanitary fittings and the wall mounted kitchen cabinets. So, in that case, there may be so extra space required in the outside lawn area, which should not disturb nearby houses. Therefore, a homeowner contemplating this should check with their council first.
