Building Regulations: Remember that planning permission is different to building regulations. When the porch area is less than 30 square metres and is at ground level, the present exterior door stays in place and any current disabled access is preserved, building regulations approval will not be required. All electrical installations and certain types of windows in porches will need building regulations approval.
