A guide to Conservatories

Your planning permission, sorted

Planning a new conservatory is always exciting. Choosing a shape and style, picking out furniture and anticipating how you're going to use this new addition to your home is something everyone can appreciate.

One aspect that can be considerably less fun is the planning and approvals process. If your conservatory requires planning permission or building regulations approval, this can unfortunately mean filling in forms, contacting local authority departments and paying fees before any work can even begin. The good news is that Anglian will take care of all that for you. 



With more than 50 years in the home improvement industry, we know our way around a planning application. In fact, we submit more applications to the government's Planning Portal per year than any other company in the UK!  

We do this because we know our customers would rather spend time planning their new conservatory than filling in paperwork. Additionally, we know exactly what information planning departments need to make their decisions, so your conservatory won’t be held up by any unnecessary delays.

Let Anglian take care of it

When you let us handle the paperwork, you can rest assured it'll be done in a thorough and professional manner, and taken care of as quickly as possible. Since we do so many planning applications, we can even advise on any potential problems before they arise. For instance, if your proposed conservatory roof is likely to be too high or too close to a boundary wall, we'll let you know and suggest an alternative.

Planning permission isn't required for all conservatories – in fact, in many cases they're considered a "permitted development", which means there may not be any paperwork to worry about at all. But if there is, we're more than happy to do all the hard work for you, leaving you free to get busy choosing furnishings and décor instead.
