News item 31 - The Government is considering relaxed planning rules for home extensions and conservatories.
The government wants to get planning officers "off people's backs" with a relaxation of current planning rules in England.
There will be a one month consultation with the intention of allowing homeowners for a three-year period, to be able to build much bigger extensions and conservatories than allowed at present without requiring planning permission.
The new Permitted Development Rights directive would make it easier to install conservatories and extensions without going through weeks of planning bureaucracy.
If the plans go ahead, full planning permission - required for extensions of more than three or four metres from the rear wall of any home - would only be needed for those reaching beyond 8m for detached homes and 6m for others.
In our view a change of the planning rules is good news for many home owners who are unable to step up the property ladder and are desperate for extra usable space whether an extension or conservatory.
