    My daughter lives in a semi det bungalow, she would like to build into the roof as her and the children are outgrowing the house, the roof would have to be raised approx 1.5 m .With the new planning regs can this be done under PD.

    We would raise the walls to retain the same pitch, there would be a step up from the adjoining bungalow.

    I think the new rule only applies to houses built after 1948 and before 2016.
    If any adjoining neighbour doesn't object within the prescribed period, seems like you'd be good to go.
