** News ** Update 9 May 2013 - The government recently announced that it will relax permitted development rules relating to extensions for a three year trial period, starting from 30 May 2013 and ending on the 30 May 2016. It is important to remember though that these changes have not yet come in to effect and hence current limits still apply. For more details on the new rules see the Planning Portal announcement. We will update our web pages shortly.
