Does this exceed permitted development?

My friend has drawn the extension below. The edge of the windows and the back wall of the extension behind the cladding will be at around 2.9m from the original house, so within permitted developent for a terraced house, but the eaves and the wood clad column coming down from the eaces would be at about 3.4m from the original house.


Is this wooden column counted in the overall size of the extension? I read in the planning guidance that the eaves are not counted, but this column has me worried that we'd need planning permission if we did this.


Thanks in advance!!

    What is your concern about applying for planning permission? It’s a form, minor fee and a short wait? I say chose a plan that works for you not what avoids a £230 fee

    I agree with Jonathan but in any case believe PDR changed so you can go out further but need prior notification? I‘ve only looked at it from the other side of the fence (challenging an office to residential conversion under PDR) but the process didn’t seem too onerous.

    in answer to your question I would assume the column is counted, does your local council have a Duty Planning Officer as they may be able to advise?

    Thanks guys,

    I was not aware of the relaxation, only used the planning portal to get the details so far.

    Looks like this could go through the prior approval procedure, but not sure the wood cladding is enough of a "similar appearance" to the original red brick house. It's a hell of a lot nicer than uPVC but I've emailed the Council to see what they think!

    Ps I didn't realise that planning permission was only £200! I guess the only risk is someone objects! W.

    I would hope not 🤞 It’s relatively small and looks great. Good luck
