If you have full planning permission then it's probably not wise to move the position of the house more than a few inches. If you need to move it reapply.

If it's only outline planning permission this really only establishes the principle that a house can be built. You now need to apply for full planning permission and should show on that application exactly where you want the house to go.

Sometimes planners like all houses in a road to line up. They have concept of the "building line" and can be very fussy about this.

I assume you just have outline planning permission at the moment, rather than full planning consent? You will need to get proper plans drawn up and unless you are very experienced I wouldn't advise you to try this yourself. I think you will need to find an architect to draw up your plans and he/she will be able to advise what you can do on your site. Planning departments seem to vary wildly over what they will and won't allow and a good architect will get things through planning that would be blocked if you tried to do it yourself.

Not a builder but I would be very surprised if you could move the footprint without getting the wrath of the building dept on your back
