Assessment of the impact of measures to extend permitted development rights for homeowners and businesses. The measures being taken forward will allow, for a period of 3 years, homeowners to build larger single storey extensions and also increase the thresholds for extensions to retail premises, offices and new industrial buildings. For the new larger home extensions a neighbours’ consultation scheme is being introduced.
