A conservatory can be a great way to add some extra living space to your home, but you may need planning permission before you start construction. Here is a guide to help you figure out whether or not you need planning permission for your conservatory.
The first thing you need to do is check with your local planning authority to see if there are any restrictions on building a conservatory in your area. If there are no specific restrictions, then you will need to meet the general planning permission requirements.
Generally speaking, you will need planning permission if your conservatory:
- Is more than 30 square metres in floor area
- Has a height of more than 4 metres
- Is within 2 metres of your property boundary
- Would obscure your neighbours’ view of their property
- Would be used as a bedroom, office or other living space
If your conservatory meets any of these conditions, you should contact your local council as you may need to apply for planning permission before you can start construction.
The good news is that most conservatories do not need planning permission, so chances are you will be able to build your conservatory without any problems.
Once you have determined whether or not you need planning permission, you can start making plans for your conservatory. If you need help with the design or construction of your conservatory, be sure to consult with a professional conservatory company.
