Building Regulations for Solid Tiled Roof Conservatories
Due to a recent change in legislation, conservatory roofs can now be replaced with Solid Tiled Roofing without any building regulations application necessary so long as they meet the following criteria:
The conservatory must be built on ground level and occupy less than 30 square metres of floor space.
It must be separated from a household via external quality walls, doors or windows.
An on/off dial must be present to control heating temperatures.
Building regulations must be adhered to in any glazing or electrical installations included.
You require our advice from us if any of the following applies to you.
Your conservatory and other buildings (including previous extensions) exceed 50% of the total area of land around the original house. The term ‘original house’ means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Sheds and other outbuildings must be included when calculating the above 50% limit.
Materials used in the conservatory are not similar in appearance to those of the exterior of the existing house. The width of your conservatory to the side of your house is greater than half the width of the original house.
Your conservatory to the side of your house is taller than four metres.
Your conservatory is within two metres of a boundary and the eaves is higher than three metres.
Your conservatory extends beyond the rear of the original house by more than three metres if a semi-detached house or by four metres if a detached house.
Your rear conservatory exceeds four metres in height.
Your conservatory eaves and ridge height are higher than those on the existing house.
If your conservatory is on “designated land” cladding to any part of the exterior of a conservatory with stone, artificial stone, pebble dash, render, timber, plastic or tiles will need planning permission. * Designated land includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites. On “designated land”, side extensions will need planning permission.
