Can I extend up to 6 metres without planning permission?

Did you know?

You can build a large single storey rear extension without planning permission (Larger Home Extension Scheme).

Under permitted development you can extend up to 8 metres (detached house), or 6 metres (other than a detached house), subject to the condition set out in Class A, Part 1, Schedule 2 of The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015.

This right used to be for a limited time only, however it has now been made available with no time limit.

To take advantage of this, you would need to go through a process known as prior approval notification, which is informing the council that you wish to build a large extension. The council will then notify neighbours of the scheme. If the neighbours comment, the council will take a view whether there is any impact on the amenity of the neighbouring properties.

With our expert knowledge, we can take care of the whole process so you don’t have to stress about getting your head around all the details and the planning jargon.
