My neighbour with whom I have a common wall of our semi-detached house wants to extend his property at the rear end.
I too wish to do a rear extension, but not immediately.
My neighbour is quite keen that we apply for a planning permission for rear extension at the same time for following benefits:
1. The common wall that needs to be extended will be of smaller thickness. In fact he claims that we will be able to save about 9 inches individually, as this wall will be treated as an internal wall, instead of an external wall.
2. It will be easier and quicker to get planning permission from council
Can anyone please confirm the claim about saving the space due to wall thinness?
Thanks in advance.
