The current planning fee for submission of householder extensions is typically £172 and for new build property £385. Permitted Development Rights (PDR) are allowed on many properties (although not all) within the County. When rights exist, in general, there is an allowance to build 3m projection at the rear of the property (from the original rear wall) on semi-detached houses and 4m on detached properties. However, this guide and all relevant rules must be clarified with the local Council wherever required. The planning portal is also a good place to look if you are thinking of building under PD Rights.View Guidlines
Nearly all building activity is subject to building regulations, however very there are a small number of exceptions. Local Authority Building Control can usually advise if this is required. A small number of residential projects can be constructed under a building notice. Large projects typically require a Full Plans Application to ensure that the builder has covered all the various aspects of the project.
