06/10/12 Government to consult on larger house extensions

The government has announced that it is to consult on allowing larger domestic extensions

The government is proposing to double the size of the permitted single storey extension that is currently allowed without planning permission; from 3 metres for a terraced or semi-detached house to 6 metres, and from 4 metres for a detached house, up to 8 metres.  A consultation will take place in the next few months before it becomes planning law. These are controversial plans and it will be interesting to see the outcome.
