Effortlessly flooding homes with warming natural light and adding crucial space, style and value, Britain’s love affair with the humble conservatory shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Decades of innovation in the construction industry means that modern conservatories are much more energy efficient, spacious, and easy on the eye compared to the mediocre conservatories of the 80s and 90s. However, with so many materials, styles, colours and finishing touches to choose from it can all be a bit overwhelming, especially when it comes to getting your head around the latest conservatory planning permissions. So, if you have questions about planning permissions for conservatories in England, look no further as this blog has been created especially for you!
Often, conservatories fall within ‘permitted development’ rules which basically means that planning permission is not required. With regards to its size, if you stick to these essential points your new conservatory or single storey-extension shouldn’t need planning permission:
*The term ‘original house’ refers to when the house was first built, or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date).
**Subject to The Neighbour Consultation Scheme.
***These rules only apply to houses in England, as there are different rules for flats and maisonettes, as well as in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
