Can I have a two storey side extension?

Hi, I just wanted to know if it's realistic to be able to do and get a double storey side extension on this house. There is an alley next to the boundary, which I thought might help our case going close to the boundary.

"Anything can be built. The concern is, is it legal to do so.

Your best bet is to have a building inspector see it first"
