    "The minimum footing that building regulations allow on single story extension it 350mm but each footing is taken on the merits of the land condition ie boggy ground or trees in close location to the build but your building inspector weather it’s council or private will advise you on the correct method he will want your builder to use"

    "Hi, the footings will still need to be 1000mm deep at a minimum, building inspector will look at 1000mm deep and determined whether you need to go deeper.

    Regards Mark"
