Home Extensions Plan Given Green Light By Peers


The long-running saga with regards home extensions has moved closer to a conclusion after The House of Lords accepted government proposals to allow householders to extend but only after neighbours have been consulted.

The plans allow home extensions of up to eight metres to be installed at detached houses and six metres for other houses to be built without planning consent being required. However, when first announced the policy was heavily criticised as it failed to take into account the views of neighbouring property owners.

As it now stands, anyone wanting to install conservatories in Somerset, conservatories in Taunton or conservatories in Yeovil of the relevant sizes will approach their local authority, who will then in turn advise neighbours of the work proposed.

This relaxation in planning laws will run for three years as a way of encouraging Britons to build at a time when home relocation is at its lowest ebb for some time. There are thousands, if not millions, of people out there keen to move properties but due to the lull in the housing market have been left with no other choice but to remain where they are.

Rather than curse your luck, you should embrace the opportunity to own a conservatory as it will benefit you and your home in many different ways.
Because of its size, you can enjoy far more living space inside your household, which can be utilised at any time of the day. It will also add a great amount of value to it which could put you in a better position to sell once the market finds its feet.

To appreciate each of the attributes that a conservatory possesses we recommend that you come and visit our Frome showroom where there are several designs to be enjoyed. It’s a trip well worth the effort.
