Do you need planning permission for a bungalow conservatory?
In ordinary circumstances, planning permission is rarely required when planning a conservatory.
However, in the case of adding a conservatory to a bungalow, planning permission is perhaps a more serious consideration – not least because of the height restrictions associated with the conservatory roof in relation to the property it’s extended onto.
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’.
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.
