Do You Need Planning Permission For A Conservatory?

If you are interested in installing a conservatory on your property, you should always be aware of whether you require planning permission. 

We have created a guide to explain when you need planning permission for a conservatory so you can have a better understanding of how the process works. 

If you would like any further advice on gaining planning permission, feel free to contact our team or your local council. 

How Do You Identity A Conservatory?

Before you check if you need planning permission for a conservatory, it is helpful to check you have designed what relates to a conservatory in order to get the correct permissions. 

A conservatory is commonly identified as a structure with a higher glass-to-brick ratio. It is attached to a building, such as a business or a home, and can be used for all kinds of purposes. From a dining room to a living room or a home office, a conservatory can be great for all lifestyles. 

What Do You Need To Consider When Designing A Conservatory? 

When you are designing a conservatory, you should consider the following elements so you can remain under the guidance of your local authority. 

  • The sizing of the conservatory – most local authorities will require a conservatory to be under a specific dimension in order for it not to be considered a house extension. 
  • Where the external walls, doors, or windows are placed in relation to the main property, this ensures that the thermal efficiency remains at a reasonable level. 
  • The percentage of glazing on the roof – this can differ depending on your local authority on how much they will prefer. 
  • Independent heating – Is your heating system connected to the main property, or is it independent? 

We recommend you check with your local council’s website or feel free to contact our team directly to check if our conservatories are in line with building regulations.
