Glass Verandas Planning Permission
Under the current regulations, many glass verandas fall under the umbrella of Permitted Development Rights, allowing homeowners to install them outdoors without seeking planning permission. However, it’s crucial to understand the limitations and guidelines associated with PDR to ensure compliance. Here are some key factors to consider:
Location and Size
- A glass veranda should be built at the rear of the property.
- The veranda must not exceed certain height limits, which are 4 meters for a single-story structure and 3 meters for a dual-pitched roof or 2.5 meters for any other roof design.
Protrusion and Boundaries
- The veranda should not extend beyond the rear wall of the original house by more than 3 meters.
- – The maximum height of the veranda should not exceed 4 meters.
Materials and Design
- The materials used for the veranda should be similar in appearance to the existing house.
- The veranda should not have a balcony, raised platform, or veranda on the first floor or above.
- The installation of a glass veranda should not significantly affect the privacy, light, or outlook of neighbouring properties.
- Consideration should be given to shared boundaries and maintaining a harmonious visual impact on the overall area.
