WHY CHOOSE A SINGLE STOREY EXTENSION

Adding a single storey extension to your home is a great way of creating additional space and adding value to your property.

You may be looking at having a bigger kitchen, more dining space or an extra living room and a single storey extension is a popular option.

Once you have decided on moving forward with your new project you will need plans and here at Merriott Chard we have vast experience in this field.


DO I NEED PLANNING PERMISSION FOR A SINGLE STOREY EXTENSION

There are many factors that will decide if you need planning permission for you extension. You will need planning permission if the extension will cover at least half of the land on your property. If the planned extension increases the building height overall, expands towards a road or is taller than 4 meters.

Also if the build will be more than 6 metres from the rear of an attached home or 8 metres from a detached home. Balconies and verandas will also need planning permission and if the construction uses materials that are different from your original build.
