You don’t want to feel short of space at home this summer, especially if you have young children who’ll be occupying the house for much of the season. Install a conservatory or orangery to inject spaciousness that you, and your kids, can use to your heart’s content.
County – The Home Improvers is an expert at designing and fitting lifestyle extensions, so we’re well versed in this specialised area.
We can advise you that if you do decide to proceed with a conservatory or orangery installation whether planning permission may have to be obtained first, but please don’t let that put you off the idea. If Planning Permission IS required you can rely on us for all the advice and assistance you need– and it will be given to you FREE of charge.
Our consultants know what planning officers require and expect. They’ll also know whether the extension is likely to fulfil Permitted Development Rights. When an extension has Permitted Development Rights, it can be constructed without planning permission; however, it must satisfy all of these conditions to earn that status:
* 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 national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
When the extension does not meet the criteria to be classed as a Permitted Development, a planning application must be submitted to your local authority who will determine if they’re happy for the extension to be built or not. You can organise this via the Planning Portal website.
For more guidance on planning permission please get in touch with us – we’re more than happy to help you with your design and planning applications.
The support shown to us during the course of the pandemic has been quite incredible. Work has poured in and kept the business extremely busy. …
