Extension or brick porch/conservatory 6m x 3m
We want to add a single level 6m x 3m extension onto the living room , or possibly a porch, depending on cost. We will keep the door leading onto the extension and want to use it as a dining room when we have company so don't want it to be too cold, so electrics with an electric heater would need to be factored in as well. Do we need planning permission, and what are the differences as well as the pros and cons of a bricked porch/conservatory over an extension?
An extension is always better
You don't need planning but will have to go through building regs
You need to contact your local council for permission they will give you all the advice you need
