Did an extension on my property, however I assumed planning was approved when in fact there was a condition that I had to show what materials I was going to use, extension has been built and completed, it’s been up for a few years now, only realised this issue when I was having a look at a Neighbouring application and had a look at mine. I’m not planning on selling or anything. Should I contact the council to sort this out or just leave it?

Technically, the extension is unauthorised as you have not complied with the condition.

Was it a pre-commencement condition? If so, that condition would have needed to have been approved prior to works starting. If three years have passed since the date of the Planning approval, then you have actually implemented an expired approval.

You should really speak to the Local Planning Authority as it could come back to bite you in the future. You say you’ll never sell, but you never know what happens in the future. It could also cause you issues should you seek approval for any extensions/alterations in the future.
