Q. Can I extend my garage without planning permission?

A. Yes but your garage extension cannot be more than half the area of land that is around the “original house”.

Q. How high can a ground floor garage extension be without planning permission?

A. It cannot be higher than 4m.

Q. Can I build an extension right up to your boundary?

A. Yes. The Party Wall Act permits you to build up to or astride the line of junction/boundary with your neighbour, but the correct notices must be served and the correct process followed.

Q. How is a house alteration different from a house extension?

A.  A house alteration involves making changes to the existing structure of a house without significantly increasing its size, such as remodelling a room or changing the layout.

A house extension involves adding additional space to a house, such as building an extra room, a garage, or a second floor. An extension typically involves expanding the existing footprint of the house and may require planning permission and building regulations approval.
