Extension Without Planning Permission
What Size Extension Can I Build Without Planning Permission?
Whilst getting approval from your local council for any form of home expansion regardless of its size can seem like an arduous process, house extension may not require full planning permission although it is always best practice to contact your local authority regardless.
As house extending is a highly complex process, house extension architects are your best bet to ensure that you will be able to complete your house extension within the planning rules and regulations set out by local councils without designing an unsightly eyesore! House extensions can also increase in price depending on whether they are being extended upwards or outwards; if building up then typically house extenders will need more material (such as bricks) whereas house extension contractors who opt for increasing their footprint (outward expansion of property), tend to use less materials. Generally speaking though; outward house extending's tend to cost more than upward ones due to requiring permits from foundations underneath existing house plans. On average, it takes around 12 weeks for Nottingham construction companies to build house extensions, but depending on size and complexity of the house extension it may take more or less time.
How far out can you build a single story extension?
A single storey extension is required when you want to add extra space without changing the shape of your house. You can build out as far as you like, but it is important that you do not overhang on a neighbour’s property. You must also respect the house building regulations that are in place for your area. You would want to increase the height of your single storey for several reasons such as to create a playroom or extra bedroom.
