PLANNING PERMISSION

The following guidelines are provided as a guide only. Be sure to check with your local council as these guidelines may vary.

Conservatory planning permission advice:

 

In England and Wales, you will not usually require planning permission, provided you do not exceed the permitted development limit for your property (which is 50-70 cubic metres, depending on where you live). Notable exceptions to the above are listed buildings and conservation areas.

Please note that if your property has been extended in the past – you will have used up some or perhaps all of your “permitted development” area and may need permission. It’s also worth noting that occasionally “permitted development” rights may be withdrawn from a property and any extension, however, small needs planning. If in doubt check.

Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 adding a conservatory to your home is considered to be permitted development, not needing an application for planning permission (subject to conditions).

New Government Guidance for Working in Homes during Lockdown

The latest announcement from Certass Competent Persons Scheme has said that external works on conservatories, glazed extensions, etc. can be carried out, as long as there is a thermal divide and you can maintain social distancing.

Non-essential replacement and installation works inside occupied homes should not be undertaken during lockdown.
