    What are the general rules of building a house on existing garden plot on a corner plot.

    My idea was to extend existing bungalow however would be good to know if i have the potential to build another property instead.

    I have highlighted in red the area in question.

    Thank you.

    You need to check your Local Authorities Local Policy on House Building and such new development.

    I don't really like the plot you've highlighted. Bares no real resemblance to any of the plots in the area and looks like it would be way forward of the house to the right that's cut off. General building lines, cramped plot and character of the area will mean it'll probably be a refusal on the face of things.

    I bet the house next to it will object.

    Not necessary will be going down this route but just would be good to have an idea of what is/is not possible.

    I’d be very surprised if your LPA were to support new residential development in that location and of that size. The existing plots and the houses that sit on them appear to be quite generous and this would create more of an infill development that would not be in keeping or respect the character of the area, which has been mentioned above.

    A lot of people erect outbuildings or small buildings in their gardens that act as annexe’s to the main dwelling. Some use these for relatives and some also use them for short term rental/airbnb type situations. Be weary of the possible Planning implications and restrictions associated with both.

    For that added piece of mind and clarification of whether or not the LPA will accept such proposals, you could try and seek their Pre-application advice. This would obviously involve some plans and elevations being put together.
