  • Hi, If you are referring to permissions it would be prudent to contact your local council and ask for their guidance on permit-able developments.

  • Hi neyazikhan, The best way to look at this sort of thing is to see the government's planning portal. There were actually changes that were brought in last year that meant certain types of extension, if they were below a certain size, do not even need planning permission. For conservatories, I have added a link below that will let you read all of the information on exclusions and criteria that need to be filled to make sure you can build a conservatory on your property without breaching regulations. The key areas of the document, however, state that the size cannot mean the conservatory covers more than half the area of land around the "original house", that it cannot be higher than the property originally was, and that the length of extension cannot be more than three metres beyond the home if an attached house or by four metres if a detached house. Many thanks, Scott
