You may not necessarily expect to have to potentially obtain planning permission for a porch, but that is sometimes the case.

In order to be considered a ‘Permitted Development’, a porch MUST comply with the following guidelines:
When it cannot be categorised as a Permitted Development, you will have to submit a planning application to your local authority.
This can be done online via the Planning Portal website.
