I’m guessing you thought that he was refering to an extension not a new structure. And as the OP and pico pointed out the 40m2 is for an extension of two stories.
And 25m2 is for sheds etc, but if you intend to live in it then you need PP, You may easily get it, but I understand you would rather do without the hastle of PP.
DOH! Should have read it better
Actually total floor area of a building is calculated to the inside of the walls. Measured inside the external wall but including all internal walls or partitions.
I just completed a successful planning application in Fingal CC for an extension and they told me to quote the floor area to the outside of the external walls. I wonder if they did this to push for a higher contribution total. Anyway, I will have to wait and see when the bill comes.
