ABOUT US

At Gibbon Design we allow you to design your own extension the way you would like it, with in permitted development parameters. This means, no lengthy decision process from planning officers, and no planning permission fees.

 

Our designs are built on intuitive proforma which mould to your specific requirements and are a fraction of the cost of a traditional architect. 

We have an extensive list of studies and recommendations before you commence work so you can be safe in the knowledge that the construction process will run as smoothly as possible, reducing the chance of any nasty surprises.

This service will provide you with construction drawings, which are suitable for building regulation submission.

 

Portfolio

Station Road, Great Bowden

An extension designed to compliment the existing building, but internally finished with a stylish, contemporary design. We incorporated the roof lantern to maximise natural light, the area feels bright and spacious, with structural members including the supporting members for the large roof light.

IS PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT RIGHT FOR YOU?

We recommend that the first action you should take to check that permitted development is applicable to your property is inquiring with your local council, as to whether there is specific requirements to your area.

 

We recommend researching the area you are in to ensure you are not in a 'designated area', as planning permission is always required in places such as conservation areas, national parks or areas of outstanding natural beauty.

A review of the deeds of your house will show if, for any reason, permitted development rights have been rescinded.

Any extension on a property from the year 1948, which has not had planning permission, will eat into your allowances.

The proposed extension should not cover more than half of the rear garden in terms of area

Permitted development extension cannot be built towards a highway, so generally, the plans can only be used for rear extensions.

There is an increased volume limitations on houses. So any loft conversions or extensions built since 1948 will contribute to the maximum volume increase allowed these are 50m³ for the detached properties, and 40m³ for terrace or semi-detached 

The finish on the plans are indicative only, and as a general rule the finish should be 'similar in appearance' to the existing property (facing bricks to match or render to match are most common)

Until May 2019, larger extensions are subject for the neighbour consultation scheme. If the extension design falls in this category you'll be notified, and we will advise on the next steps

Listed buildings always require planning permission

These rights only apply to England and Wales

These plans can only be used for two story domestic properties
