Conservatory Kit Planning Permission


This guidance reflects increases to the size limits for single-storey rear extensions which apply between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2016, and the associated neighbour consultation scheme.
Adding a conservatory to your house is considered to be permitted development, not needing an application for planning permission, subject to the limits and conditions listed below.

Planning Permission: Conservatory Kit
Neighbour consultation scheme
This scheme only applies to larger single-storey rear extensions which are permitted for three years between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2016. This means that extensions of between four and eight metres for detached houses and between three and six metres for all other houses, must go through the process.
Find out more about the new size limits and the neighbour consultation scheme.
Notification of a Proposed Larger Home Extension
This template can be used by a householder to notify the local planning authority of the intention to build a larger single-storey rear extension as described above. Please read the guidance note for help completing the notification.

Greener Homes

Whilst providing useful space, a badly designed conservatory can be a huge energy drain for the house as a whole.

The key to avoiding this is to separate the conservatory from the rest of the house, so that it can only be accessed via an external (insulated) door, so that it can then be closed off at night and on cold days.

If you want a sunspace that is integral to the rest of the house, it needs to be designed as an extension, with lots more insulation and energy efficient glazing in place.
