Planning Consent & Building Warrant regulations

Planning Consent & Building Warrant regulations

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert

Good morning

I’m in the process of buying a home on the Isle of Skye.

Attached to the main house, is a single story lean-to store room (see photos A and B attached).

On moving in to this property I’d like to replace the existing roof with a glass one to allow more light into the storeroom so that frost-tender plants can grow there.

At the same time, I’d like to replace one of the windows in the storeroom with a bigger window, again to allow more light and sun into the store room (see Photo C attached).

The replacement window would be no wider than the existing window. It would simply be a larger window by extending the length to near floor level.

The property is neither in a conservation area nor is a listed building.

I’d be most grateful if you can advise in principle if either a Building Warrant or Planning Consent would be needed to replace the existing roof in the single story lean-to store room with a glass roof, or if either a Building Warrant or Planning Consent would be needed to replace one of the existing windows in the single story lean-to store room with another window of the same width but a larger one by extending the length to near floor level.

Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated and many thanks in advance.
