Prior Approval Householder Extensions

Prior Approval Householder Extensions

Town & Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (as amended) Guidance Note for 42 day Householder (single storey rear extensions) Prior Approval applications.

New legislation (statutory instrument 2013 No.1101) came into force on the 30th May 2013, and relates to single storey rear extensions between 3 metres and 6 metres for terraced/semi-detached houses, and between 4 metres and 8 metres for detached houses. 

The new changes require that applicants, who want to take advantage of this simplified process, submit a basic level of information with their Prior Notification application for the application to be determined by the local planning authority.

Simply fill in the online form or download the PDF to see if your extension meets the requirements for prior approval or do you need planning permission?
