Anyone who dares to neglect planning permission obligations and commences with a conservatory or orangery installation regardless does so with the risk of their local planning department forcing them to tear the building down at a later date. Another scenario is that the planners will request that retrospective adjustments are made to the structure with a planning application needing to be submitted at the conclusion of these modifications. This planning application won’t necessarily be accepted though!
Failure to obtain planning permission could also come back to bite a householder when they’re attempting to sell their property. Buyers are highly unlikely to want to take the house off their hands when they discover that any extension included breaches planning laws.
Planning laws aren’t just there for the sake of it – they exist to protect our land space and the people living within it.
The full list of limits and conditions below must be met for a conservatory or orangery to satisfy planning laws:
* The term “original house” means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.
* Designated land includes conservation areas, national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and World Heritage Sites.
A proposed home extension may also enjoy “permitted development” rights and automatically passes planning laws. This is applicable to single storey rear extensions between 3 metres and 6 metres (for an attached house) and 4 metres and 8 metres (for a detached house) built before 30th May 2019.
Your home should be one of your proudest possessions and that should come across to people when they pay a visit. Seeing as your entrance…
February 14th is edging ever closer and if you’re a true romantic at heart you will either have already bought your partner a lovey-dovey gift…
