Big change for extension planning permission in 2019

Planning permission changes

After building quality conservatories, orangeries and extensions for years you start to become accustomed to the methods and processes needed to extend homes here in the UK in 2019. Depending on the size of the conservatory (and the type of house) in some cases extension planning permission was needed before construction could begin. This could be a real pain, with timescales and budget suffering whilst the homeowner waits for their permission to be granted. Luckily, back in 2014 the the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) trialed a “lighter” version of the previously strict rules to make it easier for home owners to extend their homes.
