The Government has recently announced new measures to enable householders to build larger extensions to their homes for a temporary period.

For a period between the 30th May 2013 and 30th May 2016, householders can build single storey extensions up to 8 metres for detached houses and 6 metres for all other houses.

Whilst the original permitted development rights remain, the new larger extensions will be subject to a process similar to prior approval, and a neighbour consultation scheme

If you wish to extend your house, and would like someone else to deal with the bureaucracy and red tape of the planning system, contact Claire on 01282 872570
