Why choose CGH Property Services for your Home Extension?

CGH is an all trades company meaning that we can manage all aspects of your home extension.

We provide the following services.

Can Your Boiler Cope?

Adding an extension to your house will put more demand to your current hot water system and it may not be able to cope.

It’s advised that you work out what the new extension will need to be heated efficiently, and factor in your boiler output, the size of the radiators, hot water and cylinder size. As we are an all trades company, we can work this out for you as we have our own CGH heating engineers. Also, if you do want to add an extension to your house, you should check if you need to apply for planning permission.

Permitted developments

You will not need to apply for planning permission if your extension meets particular rules. This is called permitted development. These rules for permitted development depend on how many levels your extension will have.

House extension Glasgow

1. Single-Storey Extensions

If your extension will have only one storey, you will not need planning permission as long as:

  • it’s positioned at the rear of the house.
  • it wont go back further than three metres if it’s a terraced house, or four metres if it is not.
  • the height of the eaves is no higher than three metres
  • it’s not higher than four metres, including roof.
  • it does not cover more floor area than your house already does.
  • it doesn’t take up half the ‘curtilage’. The area behind your home.
  • it is not located within a conservation area.

2. Multi-Storey Extensions

If your new house extension will have more than one storey, you don’t need planning permission for it as long as:

  • it’s situated at the rear of the house.
  • there’s at least ten metres between the extension and the confines of the grounds.
  • it is not higher than your house.
  • it doesn’t take up more floor area than your house does.
  • it doesn’t take up half the ‘curtilage’. The area behind your home.
  • it is not located within a conservation area.

Other approvals

You might need other approvals before you can go ahead with any work. i.e, you might need approval on building regulations from your local council.

If you do not own the land where the development will be being carried out you may need to get the landowner’s permission. If you live in a listed building you will probably also need to attain listed building consent.
