Planning your conservatory

Adding a conservatory to your house is considered to be permitted development, not needing an application for planning permission, subject to certain limits

Typically, an attached house can have a three metre depth conservatory built without permission and a detached house a four metre depth.

There are however, other factors which can play a part, such as neighbouring properties and public footpaths. Please take a look at the link below for extra guidance.

We can help with any planning that may be required and apply on your behalf.

Planning laws

Building regulations and planning permission are sometimes thought to be one and the same thing, although they are both very different.

Planning permission for an extension or new building will look at various deciding factors, including the aesthetics, neighbouring properties and conservation areas, whilst building regulations will stipulate how the building is constructed from a structural point of view.

This includes thermal efficiency, fire regulations and safety aspects. Both planning permission and building regulations are overseen by your local authority.
