Do You Need Planning Permission For A Solid Roof Installation?


If your sunroom, conservatory or orangery felt far too cold over the winter, just wait until summer arrives – it will almost certainly feel far too hot! 

You don’t want that to happen, especially if a holiday abroad is a no-go this summer and you have to holiday at home with the kids during the school break – the extension could where you keep them entertained. 

Get the problem fixed now with the installation of a solid tiled roof from Mitchell Glass. 

But don’t proceed with that until you have checked if you need planning permission to do it. 

It could well fall under Permitted Development Rights, which will allow you to have the tiled roof fitted without making a planning application. 

To be on the safe side, speak to the planning department at your local authority, who will provide official confirmation of whether Permitted Development Rights apply, or if you’ll have to obtain planning permission. 

Please, just make sure that you don’t confuse planning permission for building regulations approval, or completely disregard the latter. 

You’re far more likely to get building regulations approval for a solid roof when using an approved system, one of which is included in our product range – the UltraRoof 380. 

It is recognised by LABSS (Local Authority Building Standards Scotland), so it increases your chances of being given building regulations approval. 

We know from past experience of when you’re likely to need planning permission and / or building regulations approval, so we can always help and advise with such requirements. 

Before fitting a solid roof to an existing structure, we will, of course, check that it is structurally sound and able to handle a new roof. However, our solid roofs are very lightweight, so that generally isn’t an issue.
