Do you need planning permission for a bungalow conservatory?
In ordinary circumstances, planning permission is rarely required when planning a conservatory.
However, when it comes to conservatories for bungalows, planning permission is perhaps a more serious consideration – due to the height restrictions associated with the conservatory roof in relation to the property it’s attached to.
For example, it’s likely that a conservatory will need planning permission if the planned development breaches the following:
- The conservatory takes up more than 50% of the land area of your property.
- The conservatory is higher than the roof of the bungalow.
- The eaves within two metres of the neighbouring boundary exceed three metres in height.
Therefore, the main thing to bear in mind when adding a conservatory to a bungalow is height. You’ll need to go through the full planning permission process if your planned conservatory height matches or exceeds the roof of your property.
However, if you want to avoid this – you’ll want to ensure that the height of your new conservatory stays within the requirements for a ‘permitted development’.
If you feel like you need further guidance on planning permission for conservatories – our conservatory planning permission guide is probably the best place to start.
Conservatory designs for bungalows
You might find that some conservatory bungalow styles might be better suited to that type of property than others.
Some of the better conservatory designs for bungalows include:
- Lean-to conservatories – this type of roof slopes downwards – so it’s impossible for the conservatory to be taller than the property it’s extended onto.
- Hipped Back Edwardian conservatories – the hipped back-style of roof almost makes the conservatory feel like it’s separated from the property altogether if the building is multiple storeys. This style of conservatory works much better with bungalows from an aesthetical perspective – which is why they’re such a popular choice with bungalow owners.
Ultimately, the style you choose to go for is entirely your decision – and we have lots to choose from. There are no restrictions on the style of conservatory you choose to go for – just the bespoke size and height of the projected build.
How we make conservatories suitable for bungalows
Whether you live in a bungalow or have any other height restrictions, Conservatory Land can work around the issue.
Our most popular bungalow conservatory is the Hipped Back Edwardian model. By providing a hipped-back roof with box gutter, we can ensure that everyone receives the full benefits of a conservatory.
That includes a multi-walled polycarbonate roofing system, with the option of upgrading to glass.
You can also choose from a variety of roof glazing options, and PVCu frame colours.
Once you’ve made all of these decisions, place your order and we’ll begin manufacturing all the parts.

Why you should buy a conservatory for your bungalow
There are many reasons to buy a bungalow conservatory.
Aside from having all the extra space, it’s a great way to add value to your home.
How much? That depends on lots of different factors – you can find out more information on the blog post we’ve written here.
And attaching a conservatory to your bungalow is a great DIY project. If you enjoy that sort of thing, then it makes sense to buy one in time for summer!
The reason a DIY bungalow conservatory is such a good idea, as opposed to getting one that will be built for you, is because it allows you to save money.
By actually doing the construction work yourself, or even if you use a local builder to do the work for you, you’ll enjoy substantial savings.
