Synopsis: We are frequently asked questions relating to planning permission for DIY conservatories...

When looking for advice on the required planning / building regulations on DIY conservatories there are a few things to bear in mind. Please be aware that every council / area has slightly different rules and regulations surrounding this topic and we would always advise that you double check with your local authority before constructing your conservatory.

The general rules around planning permission for DIY conservatories states that a conservatory can be added to you house without planning permission subject to the following:

  • Not more than 50% of the area of land around the "original house will be taken up by additional buildings.
  • The conservatory does not come forward of the front of the property or stick out at the side
  • Max projection of 3 metres for semi / terraced houses and 4m for detached
  • The conservatory is no higher than 4 metres or 3 metres when within 2 metres of a boundary

    These are the general rules and you should seek independent advice from your local authority before proceeding. You can see detail here: Conservatory Planning Information
    and the full permitted development rights for householders here
