Glass verandas make a fantastic addition to property. They create the perfect bridge between your home and garden. They give you extra space and their aluminium frames are robust and highly resistant to corrosion. Once you’ve decided to purchase a glass veranda, the last thing you want is to be held up by planning permission requirements.

So the big question is – what, if any, planning permission do you need when building a glass veranda?


Assuming your glass veranda is going to be over 300mm above ground (which clearly it is!), you’re going to need planning permission. The exact nature of this planning permission can vary in different parts of the UK, so it is essential to get the correct planning permission for your area. Failure to get the correct planning permission can result in fines and/or your extension being removed.

The good news is that this doesn’t have to be a major issue. Acquiring UK planning permission for an aluminium and glass veranda is a relatively straightforward process and Verandas UK and Canopies can help you through the entire process.
