It may not even have crossed your mind that you will potentially need to obtain planning permission prior to the final installation going ahead. Indeed, some people will be completely oblivious to such requirements.
Did you know?
Failure to abide by planning permission requirements could result in you being ordered to modify or completely tear down the structure.
Don’t be put off though. The majority of conservatory installations satisfy current planning rules, and in any case, when there are planning obligations that need overcoming, your chosen installation company should do the necessary legwork.
Your Guide To Planning Permission
It is still worth you having an awareness of planning permission obligations for conservatories. A conservatory is classed as a permitted development and exempt from planning permission if it meets the following criteria:
* 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 national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
