Arnen Construction Ltd Provide a Guide to House Extensions in Reading

Arnen Construction Ltd developed this resource to assist those who are currently considering an extension to their home in Reading. A few points about house extensions in Reading covered here include: what you need to know about planning permission, key points about Building Regulations and, lastly, we discuss some popular types of conversions, like loft conversions and new kitchens.

What's Planning Permission in Reading?

The system is designed to protect the public interest with regards to the local environment in Reading. By strictly controlling this type of development, we ensure that the character of Reading is not adversely affected by construction. Anything that does not affect the external appearance of the structure does not require official permission. However, if your extension does require permission, be advised that your neighbours will be informed. A few of the steps in the process include filling out an application, learning about Building Regulations, adhering to the Party Wall Act and ensuring no changes are made to listed buildings.

Building Regulations in Reading

Once you have planning permission, you will need to apply for Building Regulations approval, which have separate requirements in Reading. Because the health and safety of those in the vicinity of the building is important, Building Regulations have been created as a set of minimum standards. These regulations change on a regular basis to keep in line with new laws in Reading. They apply to most standard building work, regardless of whether the work is inside or outside of the building. It will be necessary to get approval before work starts on all new extensions and even for small additions such as extra washing facilities and hot water storage systems.

Popular House Extensions in Reading

There are many different ways you can extend the living space of your house in Reading. During a loft conversion, the loft is converted into a living or functional space.
