    If a 2 storey extension is built and a separate front door is built as long as there is a internal door leading.to the extention inside is that acceptable for.planning purposes

    By "separate dwelling" do you mean "annexe"?
    Are you trying to determine whether the extension falls under permitted development or needs planning permission?

    If so, some advice here

    I guess when you notify the planners (some of whom already bear a grudge) that a change of use has occurred, via some random diy forum.
