Orangery Planning Permission

Orangeries first became popular in the 18th century – Kensington Palace, Kenwood House & Kew Orangeries can provide inspiration. Our design consultants can also take you through our recent orangery design portfolio to demonstrate how your orangery could look and how we have completed work for previous clients. All our designs are created to meet the individual aspirations of the homeowner and the style of their property. This is particularly important for older buildings and those which are Listed or in conservation areas where Orangery Planning Permission will always be required.

Classical designs and a flat roof are often more acceptable to Planning Officers than modern designs or conservatories. This is a process our design consultants will be happy to guide you through so contact us now for an informal discussion or to arrange a meeting.

If you live in a Grade I or II Listed Building, a Conservation Area or in or close by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), you will always require Planning Permission before building a conservatory, orangery or other extension. With their origins in the 18th century, and their popularity in Victorian and Edwardian times, an orangery can often be more acceptable to a Planning Officer than the alternatives, as it will frequently blend in with the existing architecture more readily.

At Richmond Oak, we have many years of experience dealing with Planning Applications for our Client’s Conservatory and Orangery projects. We are often handling more specialist Listed Building Planning Applications and have achieved some significant successes in gaining planning consents for applications in difficult areas such as in National Parks and the Green Belt.

In simple terms, your orangery might extend up to 3m from the rear of the original house wall on a semi-detached or terraced house, or up to 4m from the rear of the original house wall on a detached house, without requiring planning permission. However, there are several other factors which have to be taken into consideration and whilst you can click here to read more information on planning permission, I suggest you contact us to speak with one of our experienced designers who can assist with your specific project requirements.
