New Government Rules Allow Houses to Have Larger Extensions

The government has passed a new legislation to increase the depth allowed under permitted development for single storey rear extensions.  Previously permitted development rules allowed a 3 metre single storey rear extension to terraced or semi detached homes and a 4 metre single storey rear extension to a detached property.  Those limits have now been doubled, for 3 years only and allow 6 metre extensions to terraced or semi detached houses and 8 metre extensions to detached houses.

These new home extension rules only apply to houses though not listed buildings, flats, maisonettes or homes in a conservation area.
