Extension plans North West – Oldham single-storey extension

We were approached in March by a family that required extension plans in the North West in order to gain more space in their home as they were expecting a new arrival.

It was agreed that the existing layout wouldn’t accommodate their future needs and so they were exploring their options. The family decided to add a simple, full width rear extension to their house as this would be a lot less expensive than moving home. From the initial contact through to the extension plans being approved by Oldham Council, we were with the family every step of the way.

This rear extension was designed in line with the householder’s permitted development rights and so did not require a full planning application.

We only needed to visit site once, for a couple of hours in order to carry out a full measured survey of the house as-was, and to discuss the family’s extension plan requirements.

We were able to produce the extension plans and a technical specification for a full plans building regulations submission within a couple of weeks. Thanks to our detailed and accurate approach the design and plans were approved by Oldham Council building control within 2 weeks.  This was much faster than the usual 5 weeks.

Construction of the extension is now complete. We will add some photos here of the finished project when we receive them from our happy client.
