The government has announced proposals to make it quicker and cheaper to make improvements to homes and business premises.
The proposals would mean that, for a limited period, much of the red tape required to complete a planning application for a small-scale, single-story extension would be removed. It has been confirmed that the current safeguards that ensure neighbours and communities are not adversely affected will remain in force. The proposals will also not apply to protected areas or listed buildings.
