Can I extend the roof of my attached garage under permitted development?

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I am looking to modify and extend the roof of my partially attached garage as per the attached images.

Can this work be carried out under Permitted Development? The property is not listed/ in a conservation area.

Thank you,

I would suggest talking to the planning authority, although I am reasonably confident you fall foul of the ‘with 150mm of the original/existing plane’.  I believe application to be required. 

The alteration is an aesthetic improvement, and simplifies the roof / reduces routes for water ingress.  A neat improvement. Hope all goes well.

Hi Alastair,

Thank you very much for the comments. As you suggest, I'll engage with the local authority to check.

All the best.
