Your Dream, Your Estimate – No Obligations!

A house extension is the smart, cost-effective way to get the space you need without putting yourself and everyone else through the hassle and disruption of moving. Every year more homeowners are choosing house extensions in Dulwich to provide for their growing family, enable their lifestyle priorities and enjoy a significant bump in their home’s market value.

The Different Types of House Extensions

A house extension can take many forms but most fall into one of the following categories:

  • Single-storey extension: This is the most common type of extension where one part of the ground floor is extended horizontally into the yard. 
  • Multi-storey extension: As the name suggests this type of extension entails extending 2 or more floors horizontally outward, again into the yard in most cases.
  • Wrap-around extension: A wrap-around extension involves extending both the rear and the side of the house in a way that enlarges a corner of the home’s footprint.
  • Over-structure extension: An over-structure extension is when an upper storey is pushed out over an existing space on a lower floor.

House Extensions in Dulwich and Planning Permission

There is no single answer to the question of whether or not house extensions in Dulwich require planning permission. That said, if you are considering something simple like extending the living room outward toward the yard you probably will not need planning permission. 

On the other hand, if you want to extend a kitchen both toward the yard and the side of the house in a wrap-around fashion it’s likely you will need to obtain planning permission first.

Also, if your house is listed or it is located in a conservation area it is likely that you will need planning permission before extending it in any way.

How Long Does a House Extension Take?

How long the extension takes will depend entirely on the size, style and complexity of the extension you have in mind. If you will need planning permission you can expect that process to take at least 8 weeks, maybe a bit longer. Once construction starts you should plan on it taking a further 12 – 14 weeks.
