Will my porch need planning permission?

Project type

  • Extension
Save to list

Porches are allowable under permitted development (i.e. you'll not need to seek planning permission) if it complies with the following rules:

  • The ground floor area won't be greater than three metres
  • It isn't going to be higher than three metres above ground floor level
  • It isn't going to be within two metres of a boundary or the highway

If in doubt, speak to your local planning department who'll be happy to help.
