Permitted Development Rights

The Government has announced it is revising its proposals to grant permitted development rights for larger house extensions for a period of three years. The announcement was made in the House of Commons when the Growth and Infrastructure Bill was debated.
The proposed reforms should make it quicker, easier and cheaper for people to build small-scale, single-storey extensions and conservatories without the need for making a planning application.
The proposals have nothing to do with the requirements of the building regulations which would still apply.
