Read on for some further guidance on how to make this decision, so that you can contact local conservatory companies in Cambridge with a clearer idea of your requirements when you’re ready.

Should I Invest in a Conservatory?

A conservatory will vary in cost – but expect to pay at least £6,000 and as much as £25,000, depending on the style you decide upon. Whether you should buy a conservatory or an extension is a more complex question – so, as promised, here are some guidelines for you to consider.

When our customers ask ‘Should I invest in a conservatory?’, we always point out that building regulations relating to rear end extensions are more relaxed these days – meaning that, in the vast majority of cases, planning permission will be granted. But if you were to need, say, a two-story extension, you’d need to pay roughly £2,000 for an architecht to draught a plan.

Do you really want to pay that sort of money before a spade has even struck the ground? Would you be willing to compromise to reduce your costs?

A conservatory can be installed faster than an extension, as there is normally a lot less red tape for you to jump through. It can also double-up as an office or a dining room – instantly providing you with lots of additional floor space.

Oh, and in terms of increasing the value of your home, expect to see an increase of about 7%….

Do I Need Planning Permission to Build a Conservatory?

Now that you’ve decided that a conservatory is the right choice – it’s time to think about the style and design. The decisions you make at this stage in the process will inevitably impact on whether or not you need planning permission to build a conservatory in Cambridge.

Local councils are more relaxed these days about granting planning permission for conservatories in Cambridge and throughout the UK. Legislation changed in October 2008 and this has since made it much easier for homeowners to add value to their properties.

So, do you need planning permission to to build a conservatory in Cambridgeshire? Here are a few questions for you to think about:

1. Will your rear-end extension exceed four metres in height? If so, planning permission will probably be rejected.
2. Are you thinking about adding an elaborate embellishment, such as a balcony or a veranda? If so, then you’ll need to go back to the drawing board and start again, as building regulations prohibit features such as these.
3. If your conservatory is going to be higher than one storey, then it becomes classified as an extension – and will be subject to a different range of criteria.

After you have received your free quote from us, we’ll get you talking to three local installers that’ll be able to advise you on planning permission to build a conservatory in Cambridge.

Small Conservatory Ideas

You want a conservatory, you’re pretty sure you can get planning permission, but now you need to think things through. Space is limited and you’re struggling to come up with some decent small conservatory ideas that’ll add value to your home.

An important point to consider is the size of your garden. If you opt for a larger conservatory, you’ll have less space for the children to play or entertain friends or family in. You may also struggle to get planning permission if the size of your development exceeds half of the total area around your house.

This doesn’t mean that there are no good small conservatory ideas, but you may have to revise your plans. A Lean To Conservatory is suitable for most types of property, for example – as it can be attached to any existing wall. Other styles of conservatory – like Edwardian and Victorian – can be similarly modified to suit individual customer’s requirements, but often better suit classical/period type properties.

As you’ll have less room, you’ll want to create the illusion of space by letting in more light. So have a careful look at the different styles available to see what adaptions can be made to help you achieve this.

What size conservatory is exempt from planning?

If the size of your planned build is likely to exceed more than half the size of the land around your property, then your application may be rejected. Your chosen accredited conservatory installer will be able to discuss this with you at the planning stage and before works commence.

Do I need planning permission for a conservatory on a bungalow?

Whether or not you need planning permission will depend on a range of factors – like the size of your conservatory and the height of your roof. Finding a conservatory for a single storey property like a bungalow can be hard; and this is where your challenge is likely to lie. Have a look at Lean To Conservatories on our website. They may be just what you are looking for.

Should I build a DIY conservatory?

Doing it this way will save you installation costs. Make sure you can get planning permission first (you will need to liaise with your local council directly) – otherwise you may have to take the structure down later, which will be costly.
