Planning Permission For A New Conservatory Roof
Planning Permission & Building regulations Needed For Conservatory Roof Replacement
What is the difference between building regulations and planning permission?
Building regulations look at your homes energy efficiency whereas planning permission look at the aesthetic changes you will be making to your property.
When you will need permission:
· If you live in a conservation area
· If the eaves or a flat roof would be higher than 3 meters and the pitch higher than 4 meters
· If you will be replacing a glazed or translucent conservatory roof with a solid or tiled conservatory roof
· If you wish to make any structural changes to your conservatory
· Removing thermal separation e.g. getting rid of doors which separate the house from the conservatory
Therefore, most of Refresh’s glass and panel conservatory roof replacements do not require planning permission or building regulation approval as it is a simple, like-for-like replacement. However, Refresh will be able to advise whether you will need any approvals or permission during an audit.
The Refresh planning permission and building regulations will all be discussed with you during your audit. The Refresh Duo roof design already meets the Local Authority Building Control’s (LABS) certification, which means that applying for permission with a local authority simply involves citing RD464. Refresh will deal with the LABC Planning permission for you so that you do not need to worry about it.
