Obvious Things About Building Regulations

Conservatories must be less than 30 square metres in floor area. If they're any greater than that they'll be subject to planning permission rules. However, this is always a good size for a conservatory, and from our point of view should not impact significantly.

If you wish to create a structure that will link the conservatory to the home, it will be issued as part of planning permission and need building regulations approval. The conservatory itself will be an exempt building, though this access area will not. Click here click here for more.

Permission may be necessary if it's a Grade II listed building. Furthermore, it may require a wooden conservatory with a glass roof.

Fun With Building Regulations

By following the above you should be sure you'll adhere to any building permission, or regulations approval your new extension may be subject to. A conservatory is a good way to expand your home, and not having to be afraid of the approval of building regulation can become a great benefit.

The regulations are largely to do with making homes and business more energy efficient from the moment they are built, rather than trying to adapt existing buildings in the future at great expense. The changes apply to ventilation, fuel storage systems and combustion appliances and conservation of fuel and power and within these, there are a number of rules that needs to be adhered to.

In any case, it would be a good idea to contact your local council for any specific regulations. Currently, about 60 per cent of conservatories built require planning permission.
