Does it need planning permission?

Planning expert Mike Dade explains how to navigate the complexities of permitted development (PD) rights, and lays out six projects that are achievable under this umbrella
Proctor & Shaw ( developed the design for the extension and remodel of this house. While the rear addition and loft conversion technically fell under PD rights, the homeowner was unsure if his entitlements still applied due to a structure added in the 1980s.
