What permission do I need?
Many people aren’t sure what permissions are needed to build a conservatory. Here we’ll help you answer the questions “Do I need planning permission for a conservatory?”, “Do I need building regulation approval for a conservatory?” and “What’s the difference between planning permission and building regulation approval?”
A new build conservatory may require Planning permission. So it’s important to check if the work requires permission and check to see if it will be considered ‘permitted development’ before any work commences. To do this you must contact your local Planning Authority. If then they say that Planning permission is required, they’ll give you the information required to get a planning application.
Building Regulations are different to planning permissions. These are there to ensure health, safety and energy conservation. But most conservatories are exempt from these building regulations. Here is a list of the criteria that a conservatory must meet to be exempt from these building regulations:
- They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area.
- The conservatory is separated from the house by external quality walls, doors or windows.
- There should be an independent heating system with separate temperature and on/off controls.
- Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements (see below).
