The 30th May 2015 is an important date for anyone considering an extension to their home. The General Permitted Development Order gives householders the right to carry out certain limited extension work without the need to apply for Planning Permission. To assist the construction industry Eric Pickles has updated the order which has effectively doubled the size of extensions that can be built subject to a neighbour consultation scheme which assesses the impact on the amenities of your neighbours. So don’t forget, you have until 30th. May 2015 to complete any work carried out under this scheme. For further information call me or drop me an email.
