Exempted Development for House Extensions in Cork

Your extension may not need planning permission, depending on factors like the size and location of the extension. An extension to the rear of the house, up to 40 square metres which does not exceed the height of the original house, subject to some other conditions, generally does not require planning permission. This can also include a first floor extension, as long as it remains 2m from any boundary.
