What we know so far about uptake of the new upward extension PD rights

Research by Planning involving a selection of councils and consultants shows that so far, use by applicants of new permitted development rights allowing the upward extension of properties to create new or bigger homes has been relatively modest - with a strikingly high refusal rate. But practitioners say that interest could increase following this week's High Court judgment backing the government's introduction of the eased planning rules.
