Front Porch Extensions FAQs

Do you need planning permission to extend a front porch?

As long as the overall ground floor area does not exceed three square metres, you should be permitted to extend your front porch without requesting planning permission from your local council. If you believe that your extended porch will measure more than 3 metres in height with a footprint of 3 square metres, you will need to contact your council to get permission before you can begin constructing the extension.

Will a bigger porch add more value to my property?

A bigger porch may add more value to your property if it heightens the quality of your existing porch. For example, if your larger, extended porch was of poorer quality than your smaller porch, you may find that not much value is added at all. Bigger is only better if the materials used and the construction work completed are high quality, too.

How do I design a bigger front porch?

When it comes to designing a front porch extension, you may wish to contact professional extension architects like our team here at Extension Architecture. We can work with you to help you realise your vision, from examining your current porch to the finished project sitting proudly at the front of your home.

Designing a front porch extension can be difficult by yourself, but our expert advice is on-hand to enable you to make the best decisions for your home and extend your porch so that it looks the way you’re dreaming it to be.
