If you are thinking of extending your home, there are numerous options that may be available to you without having to secure planning permission from your local council. These are known as Permitted Development Rights. The vast majority of properties benefit from these rights and under them you can undertake a variety of work including 2 storey rear extensions, single storey side extensions and alterations to roofs.
Each kind of extension has its own specific criteria which must be met, and Rob Duncan Planning Consultancy can advise on these and where necessary suggest revisions to bring you in line with the criteria. We can also lodge Lawful Development Certificates to confirm that works are permitted, as well as lodge applications on your behalf should your proposal be one that requires permission.
Rob Duncan Planning Consultancy provides specialist town and country planning advice to landowners, householders and developer's alike, and specialises in the Staffordshire and wider West Midlands area, including Lichfield, Burton-on-Trent, Stafford, Tamworth, Leek, Walsall, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham and the rural areas inbetween.
