Do Porches Need Planning Permission? You most likely won't need planning permission to build a porch on the front entrance to your property in Hereford if: the external floor area isn't over 3m2, no section of the porch is over 3 metres above ground level, no part of the porch is within 2m of any road or two metres from the boundary of the property, your dwelling is a house, not a maisonette, flat or other kind of building.

You can always pop along to your your local planning office for a chat if you are unclear whether you need planning permission or not. Your preferred Hereford porch builder will probably include this liason with the planning office in his quote. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.

Building Regulations: Building regulations approval is of course an altogether different thing to planning permission. You should not need building regulations approval if the following is true: any current disabled access is maintained, the present external door stays in place and the porch is lower than 30m2 and is at ground level. Building regulations approval is invariably needed for electrical installations and certain windows.

Porches - The Benefits: There are certain benefits to be gained by adding a porch, including: offering somewhere to leave bicycles, providing somewhere to hang coats, stand damp umbrellas and leave muddy shoes, raising the value of the property, making your doorway more secure, give you a bit of extra storage space, giving character to a currently plain doorstep, enhancing the property's appeal to buyers if you ever need to sell and preventing heat loss through your front door.
