2. Increasing the size limits for extensions to shop and professional/financial services establishments to 100m2, and allowing the building of these extensions up to the boundary of the property (except where the boundary is with a residential property), in non-protected areas, for a period of three years.

 

3. Increasing the size limits for extensions to offices to 100m2, in non-protected areas, for a period of three years.
