Hi all I live in a semi-detatched house in yorkshire in a old labours farm house (cottage) NO agricultural tie., i have applied for planning for me to build off my existing sigle story extension (9x3m) which i built about three years ago under a PD so no planning was need, i did go down the right roads for planning to say i can build extention under PD. Regarding the reson for refusal on the extention is because it lies on green belt land and they say i can never extend on my house because i have already done an extention to rear elivation of 9m long by 3m out!!!!! Has anyone ever had this problem or understand why and should i appeal to get planning permision????

    Hi. I would have a conversation with the Planning Officer who dealt with your last application. It may be that as your property has already had one extension under permitted development that future permitted development rights were then removed at that time. I would hope that the Planning Officer would be able to clarify this for you.

    Hope this is of use.

    Take a look as this Technical Guidance Note – http://www.planningportal.gov.uk//uploads/100806_PDforhouseholders_TechnicalGuidance.pdf

    It may be that your house and buildings + the proposed extension are going to be greater than 50% of the plot size?

    Best way is to mee the planning officer. Until you have all the facts and reasons for refusal I wouldn’t advocate submitting an appeal.
