Most new porch installations can commence without planning permission as they enjoy Permitted Development Rights. So long as they measure no more than thirty square metres internally, have no adverse effect on any ramped or levelled access, are in keeping with the entrance and suitable glazed and electrical fittings are utilised, you also won’t need to worry about them complying with building regulations.

The outside of it looks mightily impressive and there’s no reason why the inside of it shouldn’t too. Put in some potted plants and include some type of lighting solution (e.g. down lighters) to help illuminate it to the outside world at night.
