single storey extensions

Highlights our newly found friend ‘The Planning Geek’ ……Class A of Part 1 currently allows for single storey extensions of up to 4m on detached and 3m on terraced and semi-detached properties. The proposal is to increase this to 5m and 4m respectively.

size increase

Class A ....adds Mr Geek... also allows for double storey extensions of 3m as long as the extension is at least 7m from the rear boundary. The proposal is to increase this to 4m and scrap with 7m where the rear boundary is shared by non-residential use.

roof-high perhaps?

This could in theory mean that two rear extensions could go all the way to the rear boundary, if the rear of the property was only 4m deep. With two storey extensions, the overall height will remain at 4m, but, where the new extension is not visible from the street, it could be as high as the existing roof.

wrap-around extensions

At the moment all outbuildings, extensions, decking etc., is limited to 50% of the curtilage. The proposal is to scrap this limit. Finally it is proposed to allow wrap-around single storey rear extensions!
