    Permitted Development

     Hi,
    I have a question regarding Permitted Development and follow on 'Full Plans' applications

    PD rights are a legal entitlement.
    Assuming correct materials and finishes are used ... do planners view PD rights when carried out - as having 'Impact', namely on the 'character of the area' and 'neighbouring properties' ?

    How do Permitted Development rights trump Residential Design Guidance.
    PD works do not satisfy the Residential Design Guidance - yet they are attainable under PD.

    I am trying to ascertain whether a 6mt rear ground floor extension vs a 3mt rear ground floor extension - if sought as PD, would have any impact on further Full Plans applications - namely a 3mt first floor part rear extension - a precedent for these has already been set in the street, but so far only on top of 3mt ground floor extensions (sought under PD).

    ie can PD applications - if gained - then go onto be viewed by planning officers as contributing to over development ?? or is it viewed separately when gauging impact and they are a legal entitlement.

    Thanks

    Good afternoon Rob,  you make an interesting post.  The simple advice I can give you is to speak to a planning consultant - it’s always worth investing a small amount of money to get the right advice.  A number of people will I’m sure give you advice but I would go to a Planning Consultant to get it confirmed .

    Not an PD expert so not sure the following is correct, but I wonder if a strategy could be to secure Planning for a 3m 2-storey extension, and then do an additional 3m g/floor extension under PD?  Presumably the additional extension would be considered a 6m extension from original house and so subject to the neighbour consultation associated with 6m PD extensions.

    Also, are you aware that 2-storey 3m extensions can be done within PD? - see p.2 of the following:  https://ecab.planningportal.co.uk/upload...nsions.pdf  (I suspect that point 4 on p.2 might mean my above strategy is not viable).
