Does Your Conservatory Need Planning Permission?

April 20, 2012

In the current climate, more of us are looking to enhance our homes rather than move, and a conservatory is one of the most popular home improvement ideas around. A common question is whether you will need planning permission. Over half, typically some 60%, of conservatories will indeed require planning permission. However, the rules mean that you may not need to apply for planning permission if: You do not have plans to use more than half the land surrounding the "original house". The proposed conservatory doesn’t directly face on to any road The depth of your proposed conservatory does not exceed 4 metres on a detached property The depth of your proposed conservatory does not exceed 3 metres on a semi-detached property Your conservatory is less than 4 metres high Your conservatory is separated from your property by an external door, or patio or French doors Finally, if you live in a listed building, a national park, conservation area, World Heritage site or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, different rules apply and planning permission will be needed.
