Easy to install and pleasing on the eye, modern flat roof extensions have become a popular addition in a variety of properties across Maidstone and Kent. The perfect alternative to a traditional extension, if you’re contemplating a light and airy modern flat roof extension, it’s likely planning permission has crossed your mind.
Do you need planning permission for a flat roof extension? Is a flat roof extension a good idea for your property style? Plus, more of your questions answered here.
If you’re planning a new flat roof extension for a house, as long as it isn’t a listed building or in a conservation area, it doesn’t exceed 3m/4m from the original exterior property wall, and its roof doesn’t exceed 3m’s in height, it’s likely it won’t require planning permission to go ahead.
A conservatory roof must not exceed 4m’s in height, or be no higher than the existing roof, to stay within permitted development rules. The maximum height permitted for a flat roof is slightly reduced to 3m high, including parapets, to avoid the neighbour’s side of the boundary being overshadowed.
If your project involves a flat, maisonette, or any other type of building other than a house, planning permission will always be required. However, larger glazed extensions are possible without the need for planning permission for detached homes located in England. Visit our designated planning permission page for full details on this and more.
