P-shaped extensions are a unique combination of two different conservatories – one being a lean-to and the other being a Victorian extension. This means you are getting two rooms that can be used for a multitude of purposes, such as a kitchen and dining room.

Larger Single Storey Rear Extensions and Your Neighbours

We understand that installing one of our single storey rear extensions is not only life-changing for you and your family, but it also impacts your neighbours, too. We know you don’t want to harm the relationship you have with them, which is why we are here to help you.

The size of single storey rear extensions has increased from 4 metres to 8 metres for detached homes, and from 3 metres to 6 metres for all other homes. This increase comes with a set of rules that must be adhered to:

    • The local planning authority must be notified with a description and site plans of the proposed installation of one of our single storey rear extensions, along with the address of adjoining properties and contact address for the developer.
    • Serve notice may be issued to your adjoining properties, and further information may be required from yourself by your local planning authority.
    • Within a minimum of 21 days, your adjoining property owners may raise an objection that the authority will take into consideration.
    • The developer has permission to proceed with installing one of our single storey rear extensions on to your home if notified by the local planning authority in writing, or if no response has been provided by the authority within 42 days.
    • Should permission be refused by your local planning authority, an appeal can be raised by your developer.

Planning Permission and Building Regulations

Many people often get confused about planning permission and building regulations. Planning permission is concerned with changes in the aesthetics, as well as the impact they have on the environment and highway access.

However, building regulations are concerned with the design and construction of one of our single storey rear extensions, primarily how it impacts the health and safety of those who will be using it.

At Ultraframe, we want to make sure it is as easy as possible for you to get one of our single storey rear extensions. Which is why when you choose your local installer, they will be happy to liaise with your local authority to obtain planning permission and building regulations.
