Hi, I live in a 3 bed semi, on the side of my house is an extension (single story garage). About 6 years ago I looked into adding a 4th bedroom on top of this extension. I got a builder to take a look and he said that I wouldn't be granted planning permission because in order to qualify for a 4th bedroom extension I needed to be able to fit 2 cars on my drive. I think he said the road needs to be 5 meters away from the front of my house in order to accommodate 2 cars and therefore qualify for a 4th bedroom. So I put things on hold. Since then the regulations have changed. My question is; has that rule changed? Would I now be granted planning permission to extend above my garage and add a 4th bedroom? Thanks, I hope someone can help.
