Canterbury Porch Extensions

One of the first things that you will need to consider if you decide to take the bull by the horns and build a porch is what materials you'd prefer to use for the floor, the ceiling, the roof, the windows, the door and the walls.

More factors to think about include: electrics, storage options, furniture, decoration and internal design.

Do Porches Need Planning Permission? You shouldn't need to get planning permission for a porch in Canterbury as long as the following applies to your case: your residence is a house, and not a maisonette, flat or other kind of building, the construction does not exceed a ground area of 3 square metres, no portion of the construction is within 2 metres from the boundary of the property on which it is being built or within two metres of any road, no portion of the porch construction is over 3m above ground level.

You can always pop along to your your local planning office for a chat if you're unclear whether or not you need planning permission. The quote from your preferred Canterbury porch builder will probably include this liason with the planning office. You should always be sure when it comes to planning permission.

Porch Building in Canterbury (CT1)

Building Regulations: Building regulations approval is of course an altogether different thing to planning permission. Building regulations approval should not be needed if the existing external door is not removed, all disabled access is maintained and the porch construction is below 30m2 and is at ground level. Electrical installations and certain kinds of window will need approval.

Benefits: There are various benefits to be gained by adding a porch, including: enhancing the property's appeal to potential buyers in the event you need to sell, decreasing heat loss through your front door, offering a place to park bicycles, more security, providing somewhere to stand umbrellas, leave muddy shoes and hang coats, boosting the overall value of your house, giving extra character to a previously plain doorway and give you a little bit of extra storage space.
