    Side return extension 4M - require full planning or PD?

    Hi,

    To extend a mid Victorian terrace by using the existing side return to form open plan kitchen/diner. The side return is 4M long, will this require full planning or can this be done under Permitted Development please?

    There property has not been extended in the past.

    Thanks

    If only there was an easy way to find out

    If you're not a conservation area and not using more than 50% of your garden you should be okay.

      I wouldn't recommend a DIY drawing for your PD app; and any draughtsman familiar with the local council's planning dept will know exactly what you can achieve for a house like yours under PD. Unlike a planning app, you can amend a drawing under a PD app. You have to appeal a No or start again and pay another fee, albeit that the fee is much lower than a full planning app

        Thanks for your replies.

        The house is in a conservation area and subject to article 4, which I understand is to do with HMO.

        From my understanding the regulation for terraces house state 3M extension under PD from the rear wall. Considering this house has side return and the kitchen protruding out 4M. Which wall is the 3M distance taken from?

          The permitted development rights are set out in the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, so comments about the Planning Portal or plans being required for PD rights should be ignored unless this an extension that requires pre-approval because it is larger than that permitted by the GPDO.

          A.4—(1) The following conditions apply to development permitted by Class A which exceeds the
          limits in paragraph A.1(f) but is allowed by paragraph A.1(g).
          (2) Before beginning the development the developer must provide the following information to
          the local planning authority—
          (a) a written description of the proposed development including—
          (i) how far the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse extends beyond the rear wall of the
          original dwellinghouse;
          (ii) the maximum height of the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse; and

          (3) The local planning authority may refuse an application where, in the opinion of the
          authority—
          (a) the proposed development does not comply with, or
          (b) the developer has provided insufficient information to enable the authority to establish
          whether the proposed development complies with,
          the conditions, limitations or restrictions applicable to development permitted by Class A which
          exceeds the limits in paragraph A.1(f) but is allowed by paragraph A.1(g).
          (4) Sub-paragraphs (5) to (7) and (9) do not apply where a local planning authority refuses an
          application under sub-paragraph (3) and for the purposes of section 78 (appeals) of the Act such a
          refusal is to be treated as a refusal of an application for approval.
          (5) The local planning authority must notify each adjoining owner or occupier about the
          proposed development by serving on them a notice which—
          (a) describes the proposed development, including—
          (i) how far the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse extends beyond the rear wall of the
          original dwellinghouse;
          (ii) the maximum height of the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse; and
          (iii) the height of the eaves of the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse;

          the local planning authority and the date when the period referred to in sub-paragraph
          (10)(c) would expire; and
          (d) specifies the date (being not less than 21 days from the date of the notice) by which
          representations are to be received by the local planning authority.
          (6) The local planning authority must send a copy of the notice referred to in sub-paragraph (5)
          to the developer.
          (7) Where any owner or occupier of any adjoining premises objects to the proposed
          development, the prior approval of the local planning authority is required as to the impact of the
          proposed development on the amenity of any adjoining premises.
          (8) The local planning authority may require the developer to submit such further information
          regarding the proposed development as the authority may reasonably require in order to determine
          the application.
          (9) The local planning authority must, when considering the impact referred to in sub-paragraph
          (7)—
          (a) take into account any representations made as a result of the notice given under subparagraph
          (5); and
          (b) consider the amenity of all adjoining premises, not just adjoining premises which are the
          subject of representations.
          (10) The development must not begin before the occurrence of one of the following—
          (a) the receipt by the developer from the local planning authority of a written notice that their
          prior approval is not required;
          (b) the receipt by the developer from the local planning authority of a written notice giving
          their prior approval; or
          (c) the expiry of 42 days following the date on which the information referred to in subparagraph
          (2) was received by the local planning authority without the local planning
          authority notifying the developer as to whether prior approval is given or refused.
          (11) The development must be carried out—

          (a) where prior approval is required, in accordance with the details approved by the local
          planning authority;
          (b) where prior approval is not required, or where sub-paragraph (10)(c) applies, in
          accordance with the information provided under sub-paragraph (2),
          unless the local planning authority and the developer agree otherwise in writing.
          (12) The local planning authority may grant prior approval unconditionally or subject to
          conditions reasonably related to the impact of the proposed development on the amenity of any
          adjoining premises.

            do you have a satellite image of the property or sketch? (with proposed extension shown)?
