Building a Brick Porch Design for Your House

Building a Brick Porch is an Investment Opportunity

View the task of buying a front porch extension as an investment opportunity. When buying an enclosed front porch, it can add money on to your property when you sell in the future, as long as the porch is of a good quality and blends in with the appearance of your property.
Consider what impression your front porch extension will have on the potential buyers when they first see your home.

Planning Permission

Adding a brick built porch to any external door of your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided. Please note: The permitted development allowances described here apply to houses not flats, maisonettes or other buildings.

  • The ground floor area

    The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed three square metres.

  • Restrictions

    No part would be more than three metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension).

  • Height restrictions

    No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling house and the highway.

Building Regulations

Building a brick front porch at ground level and under 30 square metres in floor area is normally exempt from the need for building regulation approval. This is provided that glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the appropriate sections of building regulations.

  • Front door

    The front entrance door between the existing house and the new porch must remain in place

  • Disabled access

    If the house has ramped or level access for disabled people, the porch must not adversely affect access.
