As of 31st August 2020, homeowners have been granted permission to extend their home by adding an additional two floors without the need for planning permission. But what are the restrictions and the intricate details of the new permitted development rights that allow upward extensions on existing homes?
In this article, we will go through what your new permitted development rights are and the rules that need to be followed when building your new two-storey home extension without planning permission.
Permitted development rights are changes that can be made to a property without having to seek planning permission from your local council. The majority of houses have permitted development rights, but flats, maisonettes and listed buildings do not, so planning permission is required.
Unfortunately, there are limitations to the new permitted development rights:
Before starting your home improvement project, prior approval must be given due to the following factors:
In addition, a full report must be provided about the construction management, hours of operation, and how noise, dust, and traffic will be controlled. Neighbours must be notified, and the extension cannot begin until prior approval is received.
