New rules on home house extensions

A raft of measures granting new permitted development rights in England – including those for rear-of-house extensions – will come into force on 30 May.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said the measures would ensure the very best use is made of empty and underused buildings, to provide much needed homes and businesses.
The measures include increasing the size of single-storey rear extensions which can be built under permitted development for a period of three years between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2016. These larger extensions will be subject to a ‘light-touch’ neighbour consultation scheme.
