Some good news for Homeowners as planning laws have been relaxed for extensions starting from 30th May 2013
Just in case you missed it, the Government yesterday unveiled the details of the new regime for larger house extensions.
The new regulations granting new permitted development rights in England – including those for rear-of-house extensions – will come into force on 30 May.
The measures include increasing the size of single-storey rear extensions which can be built under permitted development for a period of three years between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2016.
These larger extensions will be subject to a neighbour consultation scheme.
You can find out more about the permitted development rights for house extensions and access details of the neighbour consultation scheme on the Planning Portal.
