Building a porch at ground level and under 30 square metres in floor area is normally exempt from the need for building regulation approval.
For a porch to be exempt from building regulations approval:
- the front entrance door between the existing house and the new porch must remain in place
- if the house has ramped or level access for disabled people, the porch must not adversely affect access.
