You will need to apply for planning permission if the porch:

  • Would have a ground area (measured externally) of more than 3 square metres
  • Would be higher than 3 metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension); or
  • Would be less than 2 metres away from the boundary of a dwellinghouse with a highway (which includes all public roads, footpaths, bridleways and byways).
