Eastbourne Porch Extensions (BN20): If you're interested in a way to improve your house in Eastbourne without spending a fortune, you could consider adding a porch extension. In fact building a porch is among the simplest and economical home improvement projects you can do. A porch can be both attractive and practical in that it improves the overall look of your house, saves heat and provides extra storage.
To assist you with the design and planning of your porch, you will need to consult with an experienced builder in Eastbourne. You can also get a wealth of information and inspiration for porches online.
The first decision that you will have to make, if you decide to go ahead with building your porch is what materials to use for the door, the windows, the ceiling, the walls, the roof and the floor.
You should also be thinking about decoration, furniture, the provision of electricity, storage possibilities and internal design at this point.
Do Porches Require Planning Permission? You shouldn't need to get planning permission for a porch in Eastbourne as long as the following applies to your case: no section of the porch is over 3 metres above ground level, no section of the construction is within 2m of any road or two metres from the boundary of the property, the porch does not exceed a ground area of three square metres, your dwelling is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other type of building.
It is generally advisable to pop along to your local planning office before proceeding with your porch. Ask your chosen Eastbourne porch builder to help you out with this process. To be safe rather than sorry, check!
Building Regulations: Remember that building regulations are different from planning permission. If your project means that the existing external door is not removed, the porch construction is lower than 30m2 and is at ground level and any current disabled access is retained, you will not need building regulations approval. Building regulations approval is always required for electrical installations and certain windows.
The Benefits: There are certain benefits to be gained by adding a porch, including: increasing the value of your property, giving character to a previously plain doorway, enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers in the event you need to put it on the market, more security, preventing heat loss through your front door, offering somewhere to leave bicycles, providing somewhere to stand damp umbrellas, leave muddy shoes and hang coats and additional storage space.
