Long story but I will try to keep it short.

I am at the end of an extension of my house, done under permitted development. I saw a few different builders and architects before picking which one to use, they all site it can be done under permitted development, no planning permission. Even called the planning office and checked with them and all seemed fine.

Now had a call from the planning office and had to go in for a meeting. It would seem that in the 80's permitted development rights were removed from this house. Buried in a massive file there was a blue bit of paper saying that PD right have been removed from the property.

Back in the 80's the owner split the properties into 2 dwellings and wanted an extension to his side. The planning people showed me the plans. That extension would have used up all of the permitted development rights due to its size. Someone has complained about the extension to the planning office - when I looked at all of the paper work at the planning office a neighbours name was all over it - he was the one that did the drawings etc back in the 80's - so that's how he knew that permitted development rights were removed.

As the extension was never built I don't believe that the permitted development rights should have been removed in the first place.

Do you think there is a chance of getting permitted development rights reinstated rather than applying for planning after the event as I am now past the point of no return.

Any advice would be great.
