    Hi
    I live in an end house on a banjo, with lots of room on the side.
    Does anybody know whether its possible to extend on the side in this situation .

    Thanks

    All things are possible,
    but speak to local council who can give you advice [even over the phone].

          It's more to do with the building line and whether it's still on the side of the property. Overlooking another properties immediate rear garden can also be a problem due to privacy. A good starting point is to look at the governments Planning Portal web site. They have an interactive display that gives a lot of explanation on the current Planning regulations see:
          (Sorry, I was told to remove the link. Apparently not allowed)
          Then have a local Planning consultant along to give you a free initial survey and that should then give you a good idea.
          Cheers,
          Nick

            It is such a huge competition among building companies nowadays that it makes them do free survey and estimates for people like you just to win a job. Ask proper building company to come over, they will be able to tell you whether you can be granted an extension. - that is my advise.
