You will need a competent builder in Stroud to assist you with the planning and design or your porch. For yet more creative and inspirational ideas you should do a search for porches on the internet.

Do I Require Planning Permission to Build a Porch? Generally speaking, planning permission isn't needed for a porch in Stroud so long as: your residence is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other kind of building, no section of the porch is over 3m above ground level, the external ground floor area of the porch isn't more than 3 square metres, no section of the construction is within 2 metres of any highway or 2m from the boundary of the property on which it is being built.

It's always a good idea to have a chat with your local planning office before proceeding with your porch. Your preferred Stroud porch builder will possibly even do this for you. Be sure, and check!

Building Regulations: Try to remember that building regulations are different from planning permission. When the existing exterior door is not removed, the porch construction is under 30m2 and at ground level and all current disability access is maintained, building regulations approval won't be required. Building regulations approval is invariably required for certain windows and all electrical installations.
