General Permitted Development Order 2016 – Continued Relaxation For House Extenisons

Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) (Amendment) Order 2016

In May 2013 changes came into force to allow ‘Permitted Development’ for house extensions to increase the size limits for the depth of single-storey domestic extensions from four metres to eight metres for detached houses and from three metre to six metres (for all other houses), in nonprotected areas, for a period of three years.

The scheme must have been proven a success as it has been extended until May 2019.

Neighbour Consultation Scheme Process

A neighbour consultation scheme on new extensions was introduced by the Government in response to concerns about the original proposals. This consultation scheme only has to be implemented if the house extensions extend between the four and eight metres (detached dwellings) or between three and six metres (other dwellings).
