Front Extension

Having recently obtained planning permission for a front extension on Henley Road, I am currently undertaking the building regulations stage. I've added the project to my 'Projects' page which I will update with further details as the work progresses. 

It is quite unusual to be asked to apply for a front extension, other than porches, as it is often thought that the planning department are unlikely to approve them. Most people would opt to extend to the rear or side of the property. However, as this one was in keeping with the rest of the property and doesn't detract from the main elevation, it was approved with no issues. 

It is always worth making a pre-application enquiry to get the council's view on any application which might seem a little unusual or contentious. They will give advice at a small cost which helps a little towards the application if you then wish to proceed.
