Porches Planning Permission

 

Planning Permission

The planning rules for porches are applicable to any external door of your home.
The good news is that adding a porch to any external door of your home is considered to be permitted
development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided:

  • The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed 3 square metres.
  • No part would be more than three metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension).
  • No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling house and the highway.

Please note: the permitted development allowances described above apply to houses - not flats,
maisonettes or other buildings.what is possible is your imagination, so let your creative side take control!

 

 

Building Regulations

Building a porch at ground level and under 30 square metres in floor area is normally exempt from the need
for building regulation approval. This is provided that glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply
with the appropriate sections of building regulations.

 

For a porch to be exempt from building regulations approval:

  • The front entrance door between the existing house and the new porch must remain in place.
  • If the house has ramped or level access for disabled people, the porch must not adversely affect access.
