Assume you mean the new extension is to be single storey? No planning required as long as your Permitted Development rights are intact and you limit the depth to 3m. Various height restrictions apply all here:

Costs: approx about £1000/m2 + bit more for the breakthrough + removal of the conservatory, unfinished.

Question too vague to answer anymore.

1) imagine back of terraced door and window

2) in 70/80s two storey extension was built ( not full width of house )

3) old back doorr is now door into downstairs bathroom an small untility room ia where back door is now to get in

4) we are moving the bathroom upstairs so wish to remove utility room wich is just upvc based built brick this instead all round to single storey level

5) then inside knock out internal walls to make it look open planned so our old bathroom space is intergrated with our small kitchen so can be dinning kitchen

my partner says how would you prop up the room abouve old bathroom if you take such walls out also its old cottage stone built terraced much more weight ( 2 storey extension normal brick ) just wall in kitchen old back wall to terraced is stone

questions may not be great my apologies partner thinks it cant be done an we wouldnt gain a great deal of space

Many thanx buddy
