Permitted Development - Side Extensions 2023

Permitted development is a great option for those looking to add a side extension to their property. It allows property owners to make certain changes to their home without the need for a full planning application, which can save a significant amount of time and money.

One of the main benefits of permitted development is that it offers a streamlined and simplified process for making changes to your home. Instead of having to navigate a complex and time-consuming planning application process, you can simply check to see if your proposed changes fall within the guidelines of permitted development and, if so, proceed with your project. This can be especially beneficial for those who are looking to make relatively simple changes, such as a side extension, as it eliminates much of the red tape and bureaucracy associated with traditional planning applications.

Another advantage of permitted development is that it allows for more flexibility in the design of your extension. For example, you may be able to build a larger extension than you would be able to under traditional planning regulations, or you may be able to use different materials or design elements that would not be permitted under normal planning rules. This can be especially beneficial for those who are looking to create a unique and distinctive extension that stands out from the surrounding properties.

Finally, permitted development is also a great option for those who are looking to add value to their property. A well-designed and well-built side extension can not only provide additional living space and improve the overall functionality of your home, but also increase its value and marketability.

Overall, permitted development is a fantastic option for anyone looking to add a side extension to their property. It offers a streamlined and simplified process, flexibility in design and the ability to add value to your property. With the help of a good architect you can ensure that your extension will be compliant with the regulations and will look great.
