Do you need planning permission for porch UK?

Open front porches or door canopies do not usually require planning permission as they are considered to be permitted developments. Enclosed porches, however, may require planning permission – we recommend speaking to our specialists or local authorities for more information.


For over 20 years we have seen our customers enjoy the many benefits that porches provide first-hand.
Here’s why they are so popular among many of our customers…

Multi-Functional Spaces

Whether at the front or back of your property, there are endless possibilities for how porches can be used and, as they can be designed and installed to suit your bespoke requirements, you can decide how this unique space will function for you in the long term.

Long-Lasting & Structurally Sound

Porches are built using high-quality materials such as brick, tiles, slates, uPVC and metal which means that you can have the peace of mind that they will last well into the future. Additionally, your porch can benefit from a sturdy and robust roof.

Versatile Design

With a broad selection of colours, styles, designs and finishes available, the customisation possibilities for our porches are endless. From the lighting and flooring you choose, right down to the front door you choose, everything is bespoke to you.

Increases Property Value

Porches are seen as attractive, modern features to potential buyers because of the hassle-free additional space that they offer to a property. Therefore, if you’re thinking of selling soon or are investing in the future, they will increase the value of your home.


Porches are known to be much more affordable than other types of extensions. Not only this, but as they require little maintenance, repairs, and updates, they have a much longer lifespan which will save you money well into the future.

What are the different types of front porches?

Your porch is the first thing that your visitors will see when they visit your home and having a well-designed and professionally installed porch is a great addition to any home. As well as providing a convenient shelter outside your home porches can add value to your property and enhance the exterior. At Alphaglaze, we are experienced in installing porches that are tailor-made to your needs, here are some of the different types of front porches that we work with…

Enclosed Front Porch

An enclosed front porch is essentially a small extension added to the front of your property and acts as an additional room for your home. Enclosed front porches are usually comprised of uPVC, brickwork, and a tiled roof and can benefit from the addition of a composite front door for even more style. While enclosed front porches provide many benefits including greater levels of security and protection, extra space within your property and enhanced aesthetics, it’s important to note that you may require planning permission.

Open Front Porch/Door Canopy

An open front porch comprises a roof installed onto the exterior brickwork of your home and covers the area around your front door. This kind of porch is highly popular in the UK as it provides great protection against the elements, is easy to install and often doesn’t require planning permission. Additionally, it can be made from a broad range of materials including brick, tiles, slates, uPVC and metal. Furthermore, roofing options for open-front porches vary and can be an apex roof or a flat roof depending on your requirements.

With Alphaglaze, you also have a broad range of roof designs available to you for complete customisation options including pitched, gable end pitched, double-hipped to wall, double-hipped to ridge, single-hipped, and flat.

How much does a porch cost in the UK?

In the UK, we recommend budgeting around £2,000 – £3,000 for your new porch, however, all porches have several variables that will impact the price.
