Advice on Correct Advice

Recommended Posts

I had a visit from a retired teacher this week, who wanted advice on replacing a single glazed old conservatory with something new, and how to find a builder.

 

My points:

 

1 - Build an extension with a real roof not a conservatory. Seasonality of conservatories.

2 - Local word of mouth recommendation for a builder. It is a little too far to recommend a builder.

3 - It may not require PP depending on the distance from the boundary.

 

Is there anything better I could have said?

 

One complication - that one side of the conservatory is moderately close to a boundary. We were playing "the one that got away" games to try and decide how far, and she was concerned that planning permission may be needed. But I think that if an extension needed PP so would a conservatory.

If they get a move on and it’s done before April 2019 and not in a conservation area etc then they can do it under the current exemptions.
