Arrange Planning Permission First
Not all extensions need planning permissions approved but in some cases, you will need these before you start the build. The planning permissions cover larger scaled extensions and those built in various circumstances but there are certain rules to keep within regardless. These include:
Two-storey extensions cannot be closer than 7m to a rear boundary The extension must follow a similar design and material to the existing property Extensions built must not cover more than half of the garden area
