From the 31st August 2020 dramatic changes will begin to come into force across the country giving home and business premises owners new powers to extend, alter and redevelop. Key opportunities:

  • Creation of up to 2 additional floors on many detached, semi-detached and terraced homes to provide new living space, including bedrooms and bathrooms;
  • The ability to demolish many types of vacant business premises and redevelop these for entirely residential use;
  • Creation of up to 2 additional floors on detached, purpose built apartment blocks to provide new self contained flats and extra living space. 

Importantly, these new opportunities do not require planning permission but instead must receive prior approval from the Council. This revised procedure is less restrictive, and so provides a fantastic opportunity to home and premises owners to enhance and improve their assets. Contact us today to see if your home or premises would benefit from these new changes as part of your free consultation.
