Wrap Round Extensions
Wraparound extensions are a combination of side and rear extensions that create an L-shape at the rear of a property. A "wraparound extension" literally wraps around two sides of your property, typically at the back and increases the width of your home. It might be single or double height.
A wraparound extension can provide approximately 15-60m2 of additional area, depending on the size of your home and garden.
Furthermore, side return and wraparound extensions are also appropriate for ground floor flats. However, in addition to the other statutory consents that we shall go through below, you may require a License to Alter additional permission if you want to extend your leasehold ground floor flat.
Wraparound extensions are ideal for adding space to your home without the need for planning permission. They are popular as ways to extend the kitchen or to add a dining room area as well as downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms.
There are a number of factors to consider if you're thinking of adding a wraparound extension:
- The style of your home – will an extension look in keeping with the rest of your house?
- Your garden – is there enough space for an extension, and will it be easy to access?
- The type of property you have – is it a detached house, semi-detached or terraced?
- Your budget – how much can you afford to spend on an extension?
