Planning Permission For Conservatory

Conservatory size is important for planning permission


Planning Permission For ConservatoryIt seems to be the case that the majority of conservatories in England & Wales do not automatically require planning permission in order to be built, and so luckily that is one cost that most homeowners will not need to consider when looking at conservatory price via a cost guide at present.

However, it is important to have a rough idea of how big you can make your conservatory before you start to infringe on the limits and fall into the category that does need planning permission – just a few inches and an inspector who is particularly ‘on the case’ could mean expense at the least & disaster at the most (Sir Cliff Richard had a big problem with his £30,000 conservatory!)

So, always check with your local authority to see what they are allowing as ‘permitted developments’ in your area, and also confirm with your installer that they can handle all the aspects of design, planning & implementation if required.
