I'm looking into buying a house; the house is 'L'-shaped; one side being about 100 years old, the other (facing out back) being about 20-25 years old. Does the newer part of the house still count as an extension (and thus eat into the 40 sq.m. allowed for planning-exempt extending)? At what point in time does an extension stop being an extension?
When the planning acts first were commisioned in 1964.
Any extensions since then are and always will be extensions. As ever im open to correction on this....
