Building Regulations Relating to Porches: Never forget that planning permission is different to building regulations. If your project means that the existing external door is not taken out, the porch construction is lower than 30 square metres and is at ground level and any current disabled access is retained, you should not need building regulations approval. Certain types of window and all electrical installations in porches will be needing building regulations approval.

Benefits: Having a porch on the main entrance to your property in Heysham can have certain benefits, including: giving more character to an otherwise plain doorway, additional storage space, providing somewhere to stand brollys, hang coats and leave muddy boots, offering a place to leave bicycles, an extra deterrent to burglars, enhancing the appeal of the property to potential buyers if you need to sell, reducing heat loss through your front door and increasing the overall value of the property.
