2Area permitted
Extensions (including previous extensions) and other buildings must not exceed 50% of the total area of land around the original house.

The term ‘original house’ means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.

Sheds and other outbuildings must be included when calculating the above 50% limit.
