Hi,

We have an existing side extension facing a main road (set-back, driveway etc).

It's double story and was built 1m back from the original house. I understand this was a requirement of planning?

We are about to remove the garage door, put a window in and convert but ideally, I'd like to bring the ground floor forward by a metre with a sloping roof going back 1 metre to the upstairs of the side extension.

Does anyone know if this is likely to be possible? Got a builder coming to look soon but trying to weigh up options.

Thanks.

Is there any reason to think that will have changed?

The extension was built before we moved in, i suspect some 20/30 years ago.

I know requirements were relaxed on some aspects (PD) about 5 years ago and I've seen a lot of houses since with flush extensions.

Notwithstanding the need for planning approval is the cost of construction verses the habitable space gain worth it?

Possibly not but as it will need a fair amount of work anyway, I thought i'd investigate the potential beforehand :dunno:
