Householder Extensions Local Development Order

The Householder Extensions Local Development (LDO) was approved by cabinet on 13 September 2017 and was formally adopted on the 2 October 2017.

This LDO applies to house extensions and alterations which would normally require planning permission but that are deemed to be straight forward and low impact and in compliance with the Councils house extensions planning guidance. The LDO does not remove any of the nationally set “Permitted Development” rights but it broadens the range of extensions which homeowners can undertake without the need to apply for full planning permission.
