We want to be abloe to remove the doors to allow for the extention of the kitchen i to the conservatory. We would choose K glass for better insulation. Removing doors, does this require planning regs? Thank you.

  • Building a conservatory falls under the same guidelines as other extensions, so it depends on whether your house has already been extended and the size of the conservatory to know whether it needs permission. It might be possible to do it under Permitted Development. Best to look at the The Planning Portal to check. If the conservatory is already there and you just want to add heating and remove the doors then you don't need planning permission.

  • Whilst a conservatory, which is a temporary structure, ‘might’ not require planning permission...an extension of the home and removal of an external door will require building regulations approval. It is always advisable to obtain building regs approval as it will make things easier when you come to sell. Many people build without seeking planning or building regs approval and then find it is a stumbling block when it comes to selling in the future.
