Barrow-in-Furness Porch Extensions

If you decide to proceed with a porch, one of the first things you will want to consider is what materials you're going to be using for the door, the windows, the roof, the floor, the walls and the ceiling.

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

Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? You should not need to get planning permission for a porch in Barrow-in-Furness as long as the following applies to your case: no component of the porch construction is within 2m from the boundary of the property on which it is being built or within 2 metres of any road, the porch construction does not exceed a ground area of three square metres, your dwelling is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other kind of building, no section of the porch is over 3m above ground level.

Before you proceed with your porch construction, it is probably best to have a chat with your local planning office. Your preferred Barrow-in-Furness porch builder will be happy to help you with this process. To be safe rather than sorry, check!

Porch Building Barrow-in-Furness (LA14)

Building Regulations: You shouldn't confuse planning permission with building regulations approval, because the 2 are entirely separate. If your project means that the existing external door stays in place, the porch construction is less than 30 square metres and on ground level and any disabled access is retained, you will not need building regulations approval. Electrical installations and certain windows do need approval.

What are the Benefits of a Porch? There are several benefits to be gained by putting in a porch, including: boosting the value of the house, providing somewhere to stand wet brollys, hang coats and leave muddy boots, reducing heat loss through your front door, an extra deterrent to burglars, offering somewhere to leave bicycles, enhancing the property's appeal to prospective buyers if you need to sell, extra storage space and giving extra character to a previously plain doorway.
