I have a 1.2 metre lean to built before I moved into my teraced house 16 years ago. It has a poly carbonate roof and is supported by 2×2 wooden batons. One side baton is screwed directly into a party wall shared with my neighbour. I now want to knock down the enclosed lean to and build a conversatory, but extend it out by 1.4 metres from the existing lean to giving a total of 2.4 metres for the extension. Planning permission is not required however would I need to serve a party wall notice as:
What sections of the Party Wall Act would be covered by these works?
Attaching the roof support to the party wall will be notifiable under Section 2 of the Party Wall Act and if the new foundations will be deeper than the foundations to the party wall or your neighbours’ property, they will be notifiable under Section 6.
