Hi, can my neighbour object to my planned permitted development? I live in a terraced house, am having a rear single storey extension built 3m x 3m x 3m within my boundary. I have paid for building regs and the council have uploaded onto their website that work has commenced,after a brief visit by the inspector.

Please could you elaborate?

Sorry - I was being facetious!
Of course, your neighbour can complain; he could phone the council, speak to a local councillor, write to his MP, try to get a court injunction, appeal to the House of Lords.
But it would be no use whatsoever because Permitted Development gives you the right to build regardless of what the council - or anyone else - thinks.
I don't know what "planned permitted development" is. And I wasn't aware of Council's uploading details of commencement onto their websites - but maybe that happens somewhere.

The OP is 'planning' on doing an extension that is PD.

And some LA's have a similar online register for Building Control as they all do for Planning so I assumed that's what he meant.
No I think you're misunderstanding the word 'planned' in the OP's first post. I think he is saying he 'planned' to do the work like I might say I 'planned' to punch Nakajo in the face.

Rather than it having a Planning application connotation.
Clearly, the OP is planning to build an extension under permitted development. He is referring to the council uploading the b/regs application to their site, not the planning application which they do not have as it's PD.
