Do Glass Extensions Need Planning Permission?

It may be possible that you will not have to acquire planning permission, but only if you have Permitted Development Rights. Your new glass extension has to comply with regulations for it to be considered a Permitted Development and to not require planning permission.

These regulations include (but not limited to):-

– No more than half the area of land around the original house to be covered by additions or other buildings.

– The new extension to be no greater in height than the highest part of the roof.

– The new single-storey rear extension is sited behind the principal (often the front) elevation and does not cover more than 50% of the curtilage and is not more than 3m in height (4m for a dual-pitched roof; 2.5m where within 2m of a boundary).

(The information above as per national planning guidelines).

Our dedicated team of professionals are experienced in planning permission, consents along with all regulatory requirements to construct your new glass extension and we will ensure compliance with all the appropriate regulations. It may be also worth noting that, if your property is leasehold, you will usually need to ask the freeholder’s consent if you wish to make any major changes.

Options to consider

Our unique and bespoke glass extensions are the premier option for most homes, from old traditional cottages to modern houses and apartments. Our professional team of consultants will help with all aspects of design options and specifications to create the right glass extension for you.

Although the glass is the focal point of your new extension, there are still many design options and specifications to be considered. Usually, the glazed units sit in a frame and clients want this frame to appear as thin as possible to give the new glass extension a minimalist and seamless appearance. We have a variety of options available in regards to the glazing such as ‘extra extra’ clear glass which has a lower iron content so providing maximum light penetration and greater transparency, also numerous coatings can be applied to the glass during manufacture for greater solar control and easy cleaning and the latest addition to our portfolio being our very own, exclusive and newly developed LED glass lighting system, creating the ultimate enhancement to your project.

Another element to consider to your new glass extension is whether the glazed units are going to be fixed or you want to incorporate an opening such as panoramic or grand sliding glass door systems to truly open your home to your garden area our outside space.

Contemporary & Innovative

Contemporary glass box kitchen extensions are designed and constructed using structural glass which can be supported by our structural glass beam designs. Advances in glass technologies allow structures to free stand creating a unique and bespoke glass room.

The addition of a structural glass kitchen extension with its clear clean lines and transparent structure makes it appealing to the planning authorities as it does not obscure the host building that it has been constructed out from and has a minimal impact which in most cases is a positive attribute, especially if your property is either listed or in a conservation area and are often recommended by English Heritage and local authority Conservation Officers.

Our bespoke glass kitchen extensions can also incorporate the latest innovative solar control technology which will give an all year round level of comfort to the kitchen and dining area.

A glass kitchen extension will not only unify with any style of property but their appearance is more prepossessing and desirable than that of a traditional standard constructed extension and is a magnificent way to connect your home to the outdoor areas. All of our glass kitchen extensions are a bespoke design and are engineered and manufactured to meet your exacting requirements and specifications to utilised enhance the available space no matter the size or complexity.
