40cm over allowed 4 meters?...

Postby portal85 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 12:01 am

Hi guys,

Our original architect plans were created so as to create a permitted extension (sunroom). Now, with Aprils latest updates we find that our Sun Room (the drawings) are 40 cm over the new allowed limit of 4 meters. We originally had the room within the allowed "cubic meters" rather than the height.

We would like to know if we should now change these drawings to bring the roof pitch down from 4.4 meters to 4.0 meters or would we still be able to proceed with the original design without any incident?

We would worry that if someone somehow noticed the additional 40cm would planning permission ask us to remove the roof off do it again?

Please share your thoughts or expertise on this.

Many thanks.

Probably not worth risking it - modify the plans.
