There can be no excuse for ruffling the feathers of your local planning department as the guidelines for conservatories and orangeries are very clear.
When the extension meets the criteria to be considered a ‘Permitted Development’, no application for planning permission needs to be submitted.
A single-storey extension or multi-storey extension will enjoy Permitted Development Rights if it observes the following rules:
Anything that isn’t a Permitted Development will require planning permission. Visual can take charge of organising the paperwork involved and then submit it to your local authority.
The current cost of a planning application is £206 in England and it will take around 8-13 weeks to find out if the application has been successful.
As a precautionary note, the extension may also need building regulations approval, in addition to planning permission, but again, this is something that can be clarified by Visual.
Our Helpful Guides page includes a FREE downloadable document about Planning Permission. Give it a read for more information about this vital subject.
