Do I Need To Make A Planning Application?

Porches

You do not need to make a planning application to add a porch to a single family dwelling providing it is within the following restrictions:

  • It must not be higher than 3m above ground level (measured from immediately beside the porch)
  • It must not have a ground area (measured externally) of more than 3m²
  • It must be more than 2m away from the boundary with the highway.
  • Your property does not fall within any of the special designated land types (e.g. conservation area.)
