Re: Disastrous change to Wandsworth Planning

Hi ndubz, Yes, it is extraordinary that Lambeth are using The Planning Jungle as some sort of opinion poll! Although they are really basing on that one decision you mentioned as many of the others are not equivalent and - as I'm sure you are aware - there are decisions that very clearly support the ...

Re: Disastrous change to Wandsworth Planning

So are they saying (or intending to say) these extensions can’t be done at all, or only that they will now require planning permission rather than coming under permitted development?

Re: Disastrous change to Wandsworth Planning

It’s totally daft to say these houses are being ruined. Hundreds of thousands of them got put up at speed with no foundations, no indoor loos, no plumbing or electricity to house people. Anyway, it’s not the side return extensions that are problematic, it’s the pod on the back of houses. Back to th...

Is this an official guideline now?

This is how Wandsworth now intend to interpret permitted development in this situation.
