F.A.Q.’s

There are many questions we get asked when clients are considering adding a Conservatory to their home, here you will find some common questions but if your question isn’t answered here, feel free to ask us below.

Ask us a question

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
Do I need planning permission for a conservatory?
Conservatories typically do not require planning permission unless your property has something called ‘permitted development rights’ (PDR) removed. Ordinarily you would know if PDR’s had been removed as your conveyancing solicitor should/would have pointed it out. If you’re looking for a conservatory that projects out more than 4 metres from the original back wall of a detached house, then you will need planning permission. It is 3 metres for a semi detached / terraced property. Some developers of new properties put on something called a restrictive covenant for a period of time, these are generally very easy to have lifted for conservatories.
Do building control regulations apply to a conservatory?
Conservatories typically do not require planning permission unless your property has something called ‘permitted development rights’ (PDR) removed. Ordinarily you would know if PDR’s had been removed as your conveyancing solicitor should have pointed it out. If you’re looking for conservatories with bi folding doors that span more than 4m from the original house back wall then you will need planning permission, 3m from the back wall of semi detached properties.
Can you have conservatories without foundations?
Unfortunately, as there are no building control standards applicable, some unscrupulous companies will try and get away with the very minimum they can. It is not unusual for us to come across conservatories that have no foundations supporting them. This becomes an even bigger problem if the property owner wishes to convert a conservatory into a garden room with a solid roof which will gather the interest of a building control officer.
Can you have conservatories with kitchens?
Technically a conservatory cannot be open to the house so it would be peculiar to assume how a kitchen in a conservatory would work. But the rules state as long as there are doors of exterior grade between home and conservatory, the construction will fall outside of building control regulations. That being said, a conservatory that complies to full building regulations would be openable to the kitchen and could make a great addition to any home.
Are conservatories expensive?
Depending on the size and complexity, conservatories can either be very expensive or very affordable. One thing to bear in mind though, it is a major purchase and as such, where possible, do not overtly allow budget to rule every decision making process you might have. It is always possible to boost your available budget by having your conservatory on finance.
What to consider when designing your orangery or conservatory?
The fundamental design difference between conservatories and orangeries is the roof. Conservatories with lantern roofs are actually orangeries, yet internally some conservatories with glass roofs can look like orangeries! Let’s cut through the noise and determine what is an orangery. They typically have more wall than a basic conservatory and the roofs are flat typically with a lantern although it is possible to have two or three lanterns.
How do I know if I need a conservatory?
Conservatories are subjective and everyone will have a different reason for wanting one and with a range of designs, styles and materials, the choices to make can seem overwhelming. But relax, we have a wealth of knowledge and can help you design the space you want either to dine in, relax in or work in.
