Eltham High Street Halifax building set for rooftop extension

Plans are in to build a rooftop extension on Halifax at Eltham High Street.

The extension would be for flats and comes under Permitted Development Rights which do not require the standard application if less than three floors.

The rules came about through the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) (Amendment) (No. 2) Order 2020.

Halifax fits the bill for extension without a full planning application as it’s currently three storeys and was built between 1 July 1948 or after 5 March 2018.

It’s also not in a Conservation Area.

As such, few details are contained within the application unlike a standard submission given it’s no longer a legal requirement.

    • This could be a good use of space in a town centre location on a high street. Mixed commercial and residential developments are known to work well. similar low level buildings could benefit from roof top extensions similar to what is planned above the Halifax Building.
