House side extensions

house side extensionUnused space above your garage or spare land adjacent your house? A side extension could provide the extra bedrooms, second bathroom, kitchen or shower room for the expanding family, or the badly needed study away from the hustle and bustle of the common living areas.

Kitchen side extensions are becoming increasingly popular as a way of gaining more ground floor living space, whilst using up the usually wasted side return of the garden. Maybe you even want to accommodate the needs of a growing family, working from home or a hobby.

Side extensions often lack light or look out onto a fence or a neighbour's courtyard but it does not have to be this way. We specialise in designing and building extensions to Victorian terrace properties that have side returns, we have a nifty range of roof lights type windows as part of many of our designs.

Building a side extension can make good financial sense too. You can significantly improve the value of your house by adding that extra space.

Planning permission

Planning permission for this type of house extension will not be required if:

  • The extension to the side of the property is only single storey and no higher than 4 metres and no wider than half the width of the original dwelling house.
  • Conservatories and single storey rear extensions within 2 metres of a boundary are no higher than 3 metres with a flat roof or 4 metres with a pitched roof.
  • Materials must match the existing.
  • No more than 50% of your private garden area can be built upon. In this calculation, you must include any outbuildings that already exist here.

On designated land such as national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites - no permitted development for rear extensions of more than one storey, no cladding of the exterior and no side extensions.
