Planning News.

Permitted development update: the Government have made provisions for larger extensions a permanent right for homeowners. Under the previous provisions, single storey extensions more than 4m in depth had to be completed by the end of May 2019. The revisions allow extensions up to 8m from the rear of an original detached house but are subject to the same exceptions, limitations and consultation procedures.

The news will come as a relief for homeowners with a partially built larger home extension and also those wishing to seek future extensions.

Call us on 01565 723795 if you have any queries on potential home extensions.
