This depends on how big your plot is and what is already on it. You can build an extension under ‘permitted development’ rules if it does not exceed 50% of the area of land your house sits on. So, for example, at the back of your house, you can add a single-storey extension under Permitted Development, if it… • Does not exceed 4m from the original back wall (3m if it is not detached) • Is less than 4m in height. Consult with your builder first and see what is possible! You can create extra space in your home without lots of red tape!

Does gaining planning permission put you off adding extra space? #permitteddevelopment #homeimprovements
