    Hi there

    This is a mid terraced property that is L shaped, ie has an outrigger at the rear.

    The plan is to add a 3m single storey extension under PD from the main rear wall. At present there is an existing very poor quality lean to in the recessed portion of the rear.

    What are my PD rights in terms of replacing the lean to with a properly built extension?

    Many thanks for your help

    Subject to no overarching concerns such as article 4 directions to your area or specific removal of your pd rights to your house as part of a past planning permission you're good to go. Read the published guidance, and also read the "10 worst permitted development loopholes" - whole none of them may appeal to you it's always good to be well informed. Under the neighbour consultation scheme you could potentially make this extension up to 6m provided your front and back gardens area total is currently more than twice the area of the extension

    Thanks very much. I spent the evening reading up about it, the guidance seems to be much clearer than it was when I last looked into this a number of years ago.

    Now it seems crystal clear that both rear portions are treated as rear walls and so you can go back 3m from each of them to maintain the stepped nature.

    Thanks for confirming. :)
