    continued...I have now added a plan showing front of my stable conversion it is in an L shape the front is shown on the plan and it has a porch. I have a certificate of lawfulnes on the house and the land.

    I have been told today by a local builder that Bromley Council may try to deem the extension as a rear and side...??? Any ideas on this, he said it is because it is an L Shape. As i understand it from the portal rules that it can be half the width of the house at its widest point which is 15.4 m wide.?? HELP..!!! please, thanks in advance. i have no restrictions on pd rights, i am in the green belt, but not a conservation area or anything like that.

    The width of the extension must be taken from the cut-in to the front of the house. So if the house is 15.4m wide at the widest point your extension can be 7.7m wide but that is taken from the side wall of the cut-in NOT the side elevation of the rear extension. Hope that makes sense.
