You may be aware that recently the government announced a consultation to review permitted development rights for householders. The consultation will end on the 8th April and the changes will come into effect later this year once.  If you would like to contribute to the consultation process, please follow the link:

We support the changes as they will remove some of the constraints of the current guidance to the benefit of the planning system and householders. Key proposed changes will include wraparound single storey extensions, increases to two storey rear extensions and more flexibility with materials. If you would like to have a chat about the changes, please contact us for further advice. The image shows a recent single storey side/return extension in Farnham by MJH Architects that was under permitted development and was approved by Waverley with a Certificate of Lawfulness.
