Conservatories - Planning & Building Regs

Detailed planning is essential to ensure you get the right conservatory building for your property, and that when built it meets your expectations.

A poorly designed conservatory building will have an impact on the value of your home. It pays to deal with experts who have done the job many times, and to get your conservatory construction right from the start.

There are many conservatory styles and materials to consider and choose from such as uPVC conservatories, wood conservatories and aluminium conservatories as well as various roofing options.

Building a Conservatory

The keys to conservatory success are good planning, design and construction. A well built conservatory will give you extra living space that is neither too warm nor too cold and which fits seamlessly into the design of your home.

It is important not to compromise on this major investment. Cost-cutting can lead to problems, like condensation build-up, damp penetration, a conservatory that becomes unbearably hot in summer or one that looks terrible in a couple of years.

WindowPlan conservatories are carefully designed for your specific needs and use only high-quality materials and components that will ensure your conservatory is always comfortable and looks as good as the day it was finished for decades to come.

Do You Need Planning Permission?

Not all conservatory construction requires planning, but it is wise when planning a conservatory to ensure your property has a legal document confirming your legal right to build one. Without proper permission, you may face difficulty when you come to sell your home.

WindowPlan conservatories will take the worry of applying for planning consent from you. We will apply on your behalf to your local council. The application may fall under the town & Country Planning Act 1990, or we may apply fora Certificate of Lawful Proposed Development where this would be more appropriate and/or likely to succeed than a full planning application. This process typically takes each LocalCouncil about 8 weeks from application to planning permission.

Our experts will ensure that the application to the council is correctly made, avoiding the possible delays that can be caused if the information provided is insufficient or incorrect.
