PLANNING PERMISSION FOR PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT AFTER MAY 2019
In more recent years, the more relaxed Permitted Development Rights enacted since 2015, have allowed families to have up to 75% more extension space without Full Planning permission, allowing twice the usual space allowed for single-storey rear extensions. However, in May 2019, these freedoms are set to expire with no clear statement from the Government or councils on its continuance on the platform of a severe housing crisis where homeowners are clambering to ensure the optimisation of their home.

LARGER HOME EXTENSION SCHEME AFTER MAY 2019
Also, there could be additional changes and restrictions to observe again for commercial (and possibly residential applications). The reason for this confidence is that the trends of our rising population vs our housing stock issues have continued unchecked, especially in the capital. However, there is also the continued shortage of new sites and plots in congested areas, so it is not advisable to wait. Planning applications take the best part of 3 months to the process, so do take advantage of these guidelines while you can. You should be able to extend your home twice the previous maximum of 3-4m (terraced/end terrace/detached).
