    I want to get a wrap around extension back of house around to back of garage 27sqm altogether. Does anyone know if planning is required when raising the roof behind the garage because it ill be visible from front of house ?

    I would say yes, planning permission required, as the extension will extend beyond/to the side of the house (albeit to the rear).

    However, I know some may say planning permission is not required!

    yes, because the new roof will be visible from the front.
