    Hi, I live in an end terraced house, next door the neighbour who is at the end of another terrace has applied for permitted development to extend his house. 6 years ago he extended his house on the ground floor approx 4m and now wants to extend a further 2m. This will result in the extension covering 50% of the garden and ruining the amenity of the area. Are there any grounds I can object? Thanks

    He will be using the prior notification scheme.

    The council will write to you advising of his application; you will have 21 days to consider and make any comments.

    If you object, your objection must be on valid planning grounds (eg loss of light; overshadowing; out of scale etc).

    The council will consider your objection and if they consider your loss of amenity is substantial, they will reject his notification and advise him that it will not be 'permitted development'.

    If he has used up more than 50% of the curtilage area (excluding the footprint of the original house) it could never be permitted development anyway.
