You will struggle to find a better setting to enjoy this most special time of year, but before any would-be conservatory or orangery owner gets to realise their ambition in time for Santa coming, they must check if they require planning permission first.
Planning laws are enforced to protect our precious landscape and breaching them can lead to all sorts of problems for householders, the kind of problems that we’re not prepared to see our customers face.
Are you happy to risk potentially being ordered to knock the structure down or at least modify the design at great cost just for the sake of not bothering to check that it complies with planning requirements?
Any breach of planning laws could also make selling the property difficult in the future – no prospective buyer will want to own a property with an extension that falls foul of the rules.
* The term “original house” means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.
* Designated land includes conservation areas, national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and World Heritage Sites.
You won’t have to be concerned about these limits and conditions when you enjoy “Permitted Development Rights”. They apply to single storey rear extensions between 3 metres and 6 metres (for an attached house) and 4 metres and 8 metres (for a detached house) built before 30th May 2019.
