- East Stand Level 1
I wasn't sure if this was for the politics forum (as it's this government doing it) but from next month you can add extra storeys to a house without planning permission. Can you imagine the new terrace housing in east Manchester (Beswick or New Islington) with just a few with extra storeys on top? Or your semi with your neighbour breaking through your roof to build upwards?
It wasn't even clear from the consultation whether they intended this just for blocks of flats or individual houses.
What about the 'Ancient Lights' rule?
