Good news.

Lambeth appear to have changed their interpretation of L-shaped lofts under permitted development back again. They are now permitted.

Lambeth have now changed their policy back again. L-Shaped lofts are allowed under permitted development.

Doubt very much Wandsworth would follow suit. Wandsworth is everything you want from a council. Lambeth is just about everything you don't - utter jobsworths and double the council tax.

If you disagree, check Chivalry Road and Battersea Park playgrounds vs the 2 on Clapham Common (and then think of the money generated by gigs on Clapham Common which all goes to the inefficient Lambeth Council Coffers.)

Rant over, I'll sign the petition even though it won't do any good.

They also tried to apply the rules retrospectively!

Hi
Does anyone know the current status of this? Are they allowing l shaped extensions now with planning permission instead of pd or is everything still rejected?
It seems crazy to stop these so randomly!

Unless this decision gets overturned in Lambeth you may see Wandsworth also adopt it

Do you know if Wandsworth council is planning to adopt the same policy? Hope not..

Hi all

After 10years of allowing L-shaped loft conversions (ie the box room over the outrigger on victorian terrace properties) under permitted development, Lambeth council have just recently decided to STOP allowing such conversions!!!

This is starting to have huge ramifications across the borough, with those having built these conversions subject to enforcement orders to take them down, even if their neighbours have the EXACT SAME extension.

This is also creating a 2-tier housing market...with those houses lucky enough to have had the extension worth CONSIDERABLY more than those without, who now are unable to add the extra space.

This move is completely against the National Planning Policy framework, and contrary to what is still acceptable in other borough such as Wandsworth!

A group of local residents who have had this work carried out, to the exact same specifications of their neighbours, are now being told to take it down at a huge personal cost ... this could also affect you!

One of said residents has just created a petition for the council to allow these conversions under planning permission, as is the case in Wandsworth - and is hoping to get as many signatures as possible!

Please do help the group out by signing the petition:
