Neighbour consultation scheme

This scheme only applies to larger single-storey rear extensions which are permitted for six years between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2019.

This means that extensions of between four and eight metres for detached houses and between three and six metres for all other houses, must go through the process.

Notification of a Proposed Larger Home Extension

This template can be used by a householder to notify the local planning authority of the intention to build a larger single-storey rear extension as described above. Please read the guidance note for help completing the notification.
