Planning Permission

The planning rules for porches are applicable to any external door to the dwelling house. Adding a porch to any external door of your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided:

  • The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed three square metres.
  • No part would be more than three metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension).
  • No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary of the dwellinghouse and the highway.
