What considerations need to be made when planning a two-storey extension?

08 June 2018

Two-storey extensions don’t normally require planning permission. But regulations must be closely considered. We have written this post to provide a walk through of the limitations and conditions of a two-storey extension. It is important to note that the permitted development in this post only applies to houses, not flats or other buildings. Make sure to always check with your local authority if permitted development rights apply.

Planning permission is not usually required for two storey extensions, as long as a number of requirements are abided. In this post, we have outlined these considerations. However, we have only outlined these for house. Not flats or other outbuildings. If you are unsure about development requirements in your local area, always check with your local authority to make sure that the changes are allowed.
