Do I Require Planning Permission to Build a Porch? You should not need to get planning permission for a porch in Barry as long as the following applies to your case: no element of the porch construction is over 3 metres above ground level, no section of the porch is within two metres of any road or 2 metres from the boundary of the property on which it is being built, your dwelling is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other form of building, the external ground floor area of the construction isn't over three square metres.

You can always head down to your your local planning office for a chat if you are unclear whether you need planning permission or not. Your chosen Barry porch builder will possibly even do this for you. It is always best to check.

Building Regulations: Never forget that building regulations are different from planning permission. You won't need building regulations approval if all current disability access is preserved, the present exterior door is not taken out and the porch area is less than 30m2 and at ground level. Certain types of window and all electrical installations in porches will require building regulations approval.

The Benefits of a Porch: Putting in a porch can have various benefits, including: enhancing the appeal of the property to prospective buyers if you need to sell, extra storage space, providing somewhere to hang coats, leave muddy boots and stand wet umbrellas, giving more character to a previously plain doorway, reducing heat loss through your front door, offering a place to leave bicycles, making your front door more secure and raising the overall value of your property.
