House Extensions and New Builds in the Glasgow area

line

Adding a house extension to your existing home can be an excellent idea and a simple way of value creation which you can recover with the subsequent increase in property value.

If you haven't extended your house at the back or side, why not go ahead!. It will certainly give you more space to move around your home, most will probably double your kitchen or living room area while increasing the total value of your property, should you come to sell it or let in the future.

Adding an extension to your house
If you want to add an extension to your house, you should first check if you need to apply for planning permission.

Permitted development
You don't need to apply for planning permission if the extension meets certain requirements. This is called 'permitted development'. The rules for permitted development depend on how many storeys your extension will have.

Single-storey House Extensions

In order to give you complete satisfaction, we know that clear communication and team work are paramount. In relation to planning permission for single storey extensions it isn't required as long as:


  • If your house extension will have one storey, you don't need planning permission as long as:


  • it's located at the back of the house


  • it doesn't go back further than 3 metres if it's a terraced house, or 4 metres if it's not


  • the height of the eaves (where the wall meets the roof) is no higher than 3 metres


  • it's not higher than 4 metres, including sloping roofs


  • it doesn't cover more floor area than your house does


  • it doesn't take up half the 'curtilage' – the grounds behind your home


  • it's not within a conservation area

Multi-storey House Extensions

If your house extension is to have more than one storey, you don't need planning permission for it as long as:

  • it's located at the back of the house


  • there's at least 10 metres between the extension and the boundaries of your grounds


  • it isn't higher than your house (excluding chimneys)


  • it doesn't cover more floor area than your original house does


  • it's not higher than 4 metres, including sloping roofs


  • it doesn't cover more floor area than your house does


  • it doesn't cover more floor area than your original house does


  • it doesn't take up half the 'curtilage' – the grounds behind your home
