Whilst it’s an exciting project extending your home, you may need to consider the possibility that you could need to obtain planning permission from your local planning department in the Midlands in order to lawfully have a conservatory or orangery constructed at home?
It all depends on whether the extension is considered to be a permitted development (a permitted development DOES NOT require planning permission).
The following limits and conditions must be met for an extension to enjoy permitted development 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 conservation areas, national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and World Heritage Sites.
When any of the above limits and conditions are not met you will need to submit a planning application to your local authority. This can be done via the Planning Portal website.
