Adding a living space, or amending the space you currently have, is a clever move whatever the type of home you have! The changes you make now could not only offer you more space but it could add value to the home when you eventually come to sell it.
We know that making changes to your home is exciting, but there is the possibility you may need to alert the council or local planning department in the Midlands to obtain planning permission before any spades hit the ground or paint brushed get dipped into paint.
At 5 Star, we are here to support you every step of the way! We offer free planning permission advice to all our customers, meaning you can rely on us for all the advice and assistance you’ll need during your home improvement journey.
Our consultants look into what planning officers need from you and know whether your extension is likely to fulfil Permitted Development Rights.
When an extension has Permitted Development Rights, it can be built without planning permission; however, it has to meet all of these conditions to earn that status:
* The term “original house” means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so
* Designated land includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites
If the extension doesn’t meet the above conditions, then a planning application will need to be drafted and submitted to your local planning department, but we can help guide you through the process to ensure you are able to make your dream home a reality, legally.
We know this may all seem daunting but we are on hand to help. Let’s work together to make your current home into your dream home.
Home improvement buyers in the Solihull, Shirley and surrounding areas of Birmingham will soon be able to explore 5 Star’s fabulous window and door ranges…
