Building Regulations: You should take note that planning permission is different to building regulations approval. Where porches are concerned you WILL need to have building regulations approval unless the existing exterior door is not taken out, the porch area is below 30 square metres and is at ground level and any current disability access is preserved. You will have to get building regulations approval for electrical installations and certain windows in porches.

Benefits: The chief benefits of a porch are: giving character to an otherwise plain doorstep, lowering heat loss through your front door, boosting the value of the house, providing somewhere to stand umbrellas, hang coats and leave muddy shoes, additional storage space, more security, offering a place to park a bicycle and enhancing the property's appeal to potential buyers in the event you need to sell it.
