Latest Planning Information:
From 30 May 2013, a number of changes to the planning system come into force. Full details can be viewed here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1995/418/contents/made
Changes to permitted development in respect of single storey rear extensions
It should be noted that the changes do not apply to listed buildings, buildings within Conservation Areas, where permitted development rights have been removed or where the proposal does not comply with any other element of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (as amended). The change will be in force for a period of 3 years and requires work to be completed on or before 30th May 2016. The change does not remove the need to accord with other legislation, therefore you are advised to contact the Council’s Building Control Service to establish whether consent will be required under the building regulations.
In addition, your attention is drawn to the Party Wall Act 1996, information can be viewed by using the following link -
