5 Star is the sort of company that would never allow a customer to innocently or purposely flout planning laws as it’s something we discuss in some detail before any extension is built by our installers.
It may transpire that the proposed design is classified as a “permitted development” in which case planning laws are automatically satisfied and no application for planning permission needs to be submitted.
To encourage Britain to get building, size limits for single-storey rear extensions built before 30th May 2019 have been relaxed by the Government, so there’s a good chance your preferred conservatory or orangery will be a “permitted development”.
* 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.
You will have to submit a planning application to the planning department at your local authority. Usually you will receive a written reply within eight weeks, though it can take up to 13 weeks in some circumstances.
5 Star has in-depth knowledge of planning permission and is a specialist at creating conservatories and orangeries that local planners love.
More information about planning permission can be found in a downloadable document on our Helpful Guides page.
