5 Star is an expert at designing and fitting lifestyle extensions, so we’re well versed in this specialised area.
We can tell you that if you do decide to proceed with a conservatory or orangery installation, you should be advised that planning permission may have to be obtained first, but please don’t let that put you off the idea.
You can rely on us for all the advice and assistance you need in relation to planning permission, should it be required, and it will be given to you FREE of charge.
Our consultants know what planning officers want and expect. They’ll also know whether the extension is likely to fulfil Permitted Development Rights. When an extension has Permitted Development Rights, it can be constructed without planning permission; however, it must gratify all of these conditions to earn that status:
* 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 national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
If the extension doesn’t meet the above conditions, a planning application will need to be drafted and submitted to your local planning department. 5 Star will again provide support in these circumstances to make your life as easy as possible.
Because planning permission is such an important topic, we have written a guide on the subject. Click here to get a FREE copy of it.
