House Extensions Guidance
This design guide sets out useful information for people who are considering extending their house.
Planning permissions will normally be granted for extensions provided that they meet the policies in the Local Plan. The main policies in the `South Bucks District Local Plan - Adopted Version' are H10, H11, H12, H13, EP3 and GB10.
This design guide is based on the policies in the Local Plan. If the guidance is followed, your extension is more likely to be granted planning permission, and unnecessary delays should be avoided.
The guide uses the term extensions to include not only convential extensions constructed of brickwork or blockwork, but also all forms of other additions including conservatories, porches and dormers.
You can download all of the above sections in an House Extensions Guidance PDF.
