We say this because if you proceed with a conservatory or orangery installation and it is later uncovered that the structure doesn’t comply with planning regulations your local authority will make you submit a retrospective planning application and later the structure.
There is no guarantee that any modified design will be given the go-ahead, and if it isn’t, the planning department may issue an enforcement notice. This will require you to have the building knocked down and return the relevant area to how it used to look. Imagine the embarrassment and financial heartache that would cause.
You won’t have to worry about any of these implications if the extension is classed as a “permitted development”.
Planning permission is automatically granted to “permitted developments”. But in order to be a permitted development, the conservatory or orangery must meet certain limits and conditions:
* The term “original house” means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.
* Designated land includes conservation areas, national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and World Heritage Sites.
A big advantage of appointing 5 Star for your new conservatory or orangery is that you can put all planning permission obligations in our hands. We will ensure the design definitely gets the thumbs up from the relevant local authority.
