Do I need planning permission?

Nine times out of ten an orangery comes under ‘permitted development,’ meaning you won’t usually require planning permission to erect one. There are stipulations over its size (and which we’ve answered in the next question). It may be though that your local authority will want you to comply with Building Regulations and, depending on where you live, you may also have to apply for a Thames Water Build Over Agreement. In the instance that you do need approval from your local authority or any other agreements then here at Sovereign Home Improvements we will access these on your behalf prior to starting to build your Orangery.
