7 years ago planning permission was granted for a 2 storey extension to a house. However only the first storey was ever built. Is the planning permisison for the second storey still valid? I've heard planning permission expires after 5 years but if you've "started building" then the permission lasts indefinately?
One of the planning permission conditions will say "that the works must commence within 5 years" so you should be OK to complete the works but check with the L.A. planning department. They sometimes revoke the permission, but this would normally apply to a larger development.
The same will apply to you B Regs permission (commence within 3 years)if you applied for a 2 storey extension?
