When a customer comes to Clearview and expresses an interest in any of our conservatories or orangeries, planning permission is one of the first things we will discuss with them.
Planning permission is something a customer won’t have to be concerned about if the home extension they want is a “permitted development” as a permitted development automatically satisfies planning laws.
Most conservatory and orangery designs tend to meet the criteria laid out for permitted developments as the government relaxed size limits for single-storey rear extensions built before 30th May 2019 to give householders encouragement to extend their homes.
* 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.
If the planned design falls short on any of those points, a planning application will need to be completed and submitted to the planning department at your local authority.
On average, it takes eight weeks for them to adjudicate and up to 13 weeks for the most complex extensions.
Planning permission is something we have immense knowledge of. We know what planners in the North West want and create conservatory and orangery designs that keep them, and people like you, happy.
