Building Regulations: You should bear in mind that planning permission is completely different to building regulations approval. When the porch construction is below 30 square metres and on ground level, any disabled access is maintained and the present external door remains in place, building regulations approval shouldn't be required. You will need to get building regulations approval for electrical installations and certain types of window in porches.

The Benefits of a Porch: There are a number of benefits that having a porch extension brings, including: reducing heat loss through your front door, raising the overall value of your house, enhancing the property's appeal to potential buyers if you need to put it on the market, giving extra character to a previously plain doorstep, offering somewhere to park a bicycle, providing somewhere to leave muddy boots, hang coats and stand brollys, give you a little bit of extra storage space and making your front door more secure.
