The living space of every home is limited to a particular size, and there comes a time when you must consider expanding your home to create additional living space. One of the most obvious and popular ways of expanding a home is to add a side extension to the property. Depending on the layout of your home, you could build a side extension to create a larger dining room, living room, utility room or kitchen.
Although a side extension is usually a straightforward home improvement, there are still many matters that must be considered carefully when planning the layout, construction and the materials for a side extension.
In some instances, a side extension will not require planning permission as it will be under your permitted development rights, only requiring a Certificate of Lawfulness. Other side extensions will require a Full Planning Application.
It is important to note that regardless of whether or not your side extension requires planning permission, you will definitely need to submit scaled architectural drawings to your local authority. These outline your existing property and clearly indicate the proposals.
