It would also be a good idea to think about furniture, electric sockets, storage possibilities, decoration and internal design at this stage.

Do I Need Planning Permission for a Porch? When you are building a porch onto the front entrance of your home in Swadlincote, you should not need planning permission if: no part of the porch is over 3m above ground level, the external floor area of the construction is not more than 3 square metres, no element of the porch construction is within two metres from the boundary of the property on which it is being built or within 2m of any highway, your dwelling is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other form of building.

Your local planning office is the place to head for if you are the slightest bit unsure about the need for planning permission. See if your chosen Swadlincote porch builder will come along with you. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.

Building Regulations: Most homeowners may not appreciate that building regulations approval is very different to planning permission. When the existing external door stays in place, any current disability access is maintained and the porch is lower than 30 square metres and on ground level, building regulations approval won't be needed. All electrical installations and certain types of windows in porches will be needing building regulations approval.

The Benefits of a Porch Extension: Adding a porch extension can have several benefits, including: providing somewhere to leave muddy shoes, hang coats and stand umbrellas, making your doorway more secure, giving extra character to an otherwise plain entrance, lessening heat loss through your front door, give you a bit of extra storage space, increasing the overall value of the property, enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers if you ever need to put it on the market and offering a place to park a bicycle.
