Planning Drawings for Conservatory

Conservatory Plans and Drawings Online

One of the most popular home improvement projects in the UK is a building a conservatory


The benefit over adding a conservatory to your home rather than a new extension comes down to two things.

The use and the cost of the build. Conservatories can be more than 50% cheaper to builder than a house extension. On average, conservatories add around 5% to your property value. 


A conservatory will usually fall under your permitted development rights. These are rights that allow a householder to alter their property as long as it follows the guidelines set out by the government. A conservatory is considered the same as a extension by the planning authorities. Sometimes Conservatory Planning Application Drawings are required.

You can check online through the UK Government Planning Portal to see if your conservatory plans are likely to need planning permission. Even if your conservatory is considered a Permitted Development. We recommend that you obtain a Lawful Development Certificate. A Lawful Development Certificate is basically a letter from you Local Authority that confirms you can build without conservatory Planning Permission and you can be sure that you're not breaking any rules. This certificate will also be important if you eventually come to sell your house. A Lawful Development Certificate Application would require architectural conservatory drawings

Conservatory Building Regulations Drawings

We can also create Building Regulation Plans  for a Conservatory. 

The majority of conservatories in England and Wales are exempt from building regulation approval, but there are circumstances when an application is necessary. A conservatory is only exempt from building regulations when:

  • No less than 1 metre away from any boundary.

  • Less than 30 metres square

  • Built at ground level

  • Separated by an external wall, or external windows and doors

  • The conservatory has an independent heating system.

Conservatory Plans may need building regulation approval from your Local Authority or an Approved Inspector. This can be accomplished in two ways:


There are two ways your can achieve Building Regulation Approval for an extension. We can help create your conservatory building regulation drawings

1. A Building Notice

By the completion of a building notice form, there are no drawings required for this and you or your builder can submit this yourself and then a site visit will be arranged by the building control officer.

2. Building Regulation Full Plans Application

This is the option we recommend. Here you would need Architectural Building Regulation Drawings. We can help produce these for you. These would then be pre-checked by a building control officer before builder works begin. 


This means would can be 100% confident that you are complete complaint and you won't have any costly repairs and rebuilds in the near future. The extension building regulations drawings we produce include all the required details and notes for your to obtain Full Plans Building Regulation Approval
