The majority of porches are considered as a ‘permitted development’ so therefore do not require any kind of planning permission which saves time and money. The criteria to meet your new porch as permitted development would be:
The internal ground floor area does not exceed three square metres
No part of the porch is more than three metres above ground level
No part of the porch is within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling and the highway.
Porch Building Regulations
Porches are also normally exempt from building regulations providing that they are less than 30 square metres in size, measured internally. The main front entrance door between the existing house and new porch however must remain in situ, and the new porch must not adversely affect any ramped or levelled access.
The fitting of glazing and any fixed electrical installations must comply with the relevant section of building regulations, don’t worry though all of our work is carried out to strict building regulations by our experienced fitting teams and overseen by our in-house surveyors.
