Building Regulations Relating to Porches: Building regulations approval is of course different to planning permission. When the porch area is lower than 30 square metres and on ground level, the exterior door is not removed and all current disability access is maintained, building regulations approval will not be needed. You will have to get approval for electrical installations and certain kinds of window in porches.

The Benefits of a Porch: There are a surprising number of benefits that having a porch brings, including: raising the value of the property, an extra deterrent to burglars, giving character to a previously plain doorstep, enhancing the property's appeal to buyers when you need to sell it, reducing heat loss through your front door, providing somewhere to stand brollys, hang coats and leave muddy boots, offering somewhere to leave a bicycle and additional storage space.

Just as effective on either the front, rear or side of your property, lean-to porches are certainly one of the easiest ways to extend your house in Gillingham. Lean-to porches in Gillingham can either be completely enclosed, open to the elements or partially enclosed. Lean-to porches can actually be as simple as 4 timber posts supporting a sloping roof.
