Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? When you are building a porch onto the front entrance of your house in Cheltenham, you shouldn't need planning permission if: no section of the porch construction is over 3 metres above ground level, the porch 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 2 metres of any road, your residence is a house, and not a flat, maisonette or other kind of building.

If you're uncertain about whether or not you need planning permission, pop down to your local planning office. Your chosen Cheltenham porch builder will most likely include this liason with the planning office in his estimate. It is always best to check.
