    Permitted development with previous full planning?

    Permitted development with previous full planning? 10th Oct 17 at 9:33 AM
    We bought our house in 2016, and the previous owners put a 2 story extension on the side, with full planning, in 2004.

    The original house was built in 1950.

    If we were to want to do a loft conversion, with dormers to the rear of the property, or add a conservatory, would we will have permitted development rights (assuming we comply with the rules of such rights, e.g. proximity to boundaries, height, coverage of land area, etc), or does the previous full planning consent mean further development also requires full planning?

    Thanks!

    You still have permitted development rights but you would need to keep the dormers within the width of the original house and not the two storey side extension. I have just got approval for something identical under permitted development.

    However it is worth noting that, although national rights under PD, individual councils do have their own interpretations of the rules.

    Ah, that's mildly annoying, I was thinking the roof space over the extension could be an en-suite!

    Perhaps I should consider full planning anyway, and then I can put dormers on both sides...

    When I say Dormers, I'm thinking more Mansard style...

    But the idea of a conservatory isn't out the window then.

    Permitted Development is based on the original footprint of the property I believe.
