Current Permitted Development rights

Under current legislation you can make certain types of minor changes to your property without needing to apply for planning permission. These are called “permitted development rights“.

Generally under your permitted development rights a single storey extension to the rear of your semi detached property may extend 3m or 4m if the property is detached. There are of course exceptions to this and permitted development rights which apply to many common projects for houses do not apply to flats, maisonettes or other buildings.

A more in depth guide can be found at the Planning portal website.
