Is planning permission needed for a conservatory?
In most cases, the answer is no because a conservatory is an addition which is classed as being a 'permitted development right' under UK law.
Before confirming any final conservatory costs and embarking on the building project, we will deal with all the necessary planning permission and paperwork to make sure it is a stress-free process for you.
Can I upgrade an existing conservatory?
Yes, you can upgrade your existing conservatory so that it enjoys comfortable temperatures all year round - and the most popular way is to replace the roof with either a tiled or Hybrid version.
According to guidance issued by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in September 2010, a conservatory must have a significant proportion of translucent walls and roof – although a minimum or maximum percentage is not stated.
When adding a new roof, building Regulations approval is NOT needed if your project is:
- At ground level - and be less than 30m2 in floor area.
- Thermally separated from main dwelling - by walls, windows or doors
- Unattached to dwelling’s main heating system.
If work is carried out that significantly reduces the proportion of glazing or translucence, the conservatory is no longer considered exempt - and the whole structure WILL require approval from the local authority. Click here for more details.
If planning is required, we can remove the hassle by securing permission on your behalf – so your project is 100% compliant.
