Planning Permission


The planning permission rules for porches are applicable to any external door to the dwellinghouse.


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 following:


  • 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.
