    i hope that if anyone can answer my confusion

    On a terraced property you can build up to 6m rear extension on a prior approval application obviously if the criteria is satisfied.

    my question is on a full 6m application is approved on the decision letter its states:

    "Householder Prior Approval: Erection of rear extension 1.55 m beyond ORIGINAL REAR WALL 3.9 m maximum height 2.4 m height to eaves"

    Now the original rear wall is from a kitchen rear extension (existing rear kitchen being 4.45m)

    There are other decision letters which states that 6m from original rear wall (I'm assuming from the house) even with a small existing kitchen

    My understanding of this is that the kitchen was built with the house??? So it's classed as rear original wall??? If that's the case how can you establish if the kitchen was built with the house?

    Hope this makes sense

    Sorry to be confusing

    Basically how can you establish a original rear wall from a existing rear extension

    Hope this makes sense

    In the Guidance to the permitted development rules, the phrase 'the rear wall' could possibly be open to interpretation.
    Looking at it logically, I would say that the rear wall of your extension is the rear wall of the house. But that's not how
    it's understood in the world of Planning. In practice, they would be saying you can extend 6m from the two-storey wall,
    which presumably would take you 1.55m beyond the extension.

    One of its legs is both the same.
