How big can you build an extension without planning?

Good news. The permitted development rules have recently been relaxed, allowing you to build an extension without planning permission of up to six metres (or eight metres if your house is detached).

Before you set to work, we’ve put together a checklist to make sure this applies to your project:

the 1 last update 2020/05/31   

1. Will your extension be completed by May 2019?

This is the deadline to take advantage of the more generous allowance for extensions (see above).

 

2. Is your property a house?

Flats, maisonettes or any other type of buildings do not have permitted development rights, so¬†you won’t be able to build your extension without full planning permission. Also, be aware that if your property¬†has undergone a change of use or been converted into a house in the past, it may not enjoy permitted development rights.

3. Have you or any previous owners extended the house since 1948?

If so, these extensions will eat up your permitted development allowance.

 

4. Is your property listed or on¬†‘designated land?’

Or other ‘protected’ areas, including Conservation Areas, National Parks, areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Norfolk or Suffolk Broads or a World Heritage Site? Your permitted development rights might even have been removed if there is an ‘Article 4’ direction for your property.

Hopefully, it may only be the case that your permitted development rights have been restricted on designated land, meaning you cannot:

  • build more than one storey;
  • build a side extension;
  • or¬†clad the exterior.

 

Still with us? Great!¬†Now down to the nitty gritty…

 

Increased permitted development rules for an extension

The notes below are intended as a brief summary and should not be taken as design guidance. We strongly recommend you read the official guidance in full before proceeding (read it here):

 

Permitted development rules applicable to ALL extensions

  1. Materials to be similar to the existing house
  2. No verandas, balconies or raised platforms
  3. Must not be taller than the existing house

4. The extension(s) should not take up more than half of the garden/outdoor space

5.¬†A single storey extension can’t be more than four metres high.¬†If the extension is within two metres of the properties boundary, it can’t be more than three metres high.

Permitted development rules for side extensions

1. Under the relaxed rules, you can extend up to eight metres for detached houses and six metres for all other houses. Please note that for these larger extensions (beyond four and three metres respectively) you will need to give notification under the Neighbour Consultation Scheme. If you get any objections, you may not be able to build a larger extension.

Choosing the right architect for your home project is a critical first step, but can also be a bit of a minefield. This is exactly why I set up this website in the first place!

As well as being the 1 last update 31 May 2020 founder of As well as being founder of designforme.comWoodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for , I am also a qualified architect. I found that many homeowners search online to find an architect and discover well established or high-end practices (it makes sense ‚Äď these companies have bigger marketing budgets with stylish websites). However, such practices are often too busy, too expensive and, in fact, often less experienced in dealing with small residential projects on ‚Äėnormal‚Äô budgets.

So, I wanted to create this platform for those design professionals I know who are suitable, experienced and eager to take on domestic projects like yours. They include small, young practices or freelancers. The problem was that, before Design for Me, they were very difficult to find! All you need to do is tell us a bit about your project…
