Do you need planning permission for a balcony?

A balcony is a great addition to any home, not only does it add value to the property, but it also extends the living space outside. At carter fabrications, we have years of experience in creating beautiful bespoke steel and glass balconies.

In most cases, planning permission would have to be gained, for any balcony built on your home. However, by meeting certain regulations, we can help to improve your chances of becoming a successful applicant.

Tips for a successful planning application

Planning councillors will take into account the location of your home and the positioning of your proposed balcony. You are more likely to be successful in your application if it is not directly looking over into a neighbour’s home or garden. The privacy of surrounding houses is always a very important factor to the council.

The noise and disruption of a balcony is also a factor of assessment. This can be tackled by considering a juliet balcony. The waist high glass windows look sleek and elegant, reduce noise and improve your chances of a successful application.

We have a selection of beautiful, high quality balconies available to choose from. We use your input and ideas to design the ideal space, then our team of expert joiners will install it quickly and efficiently

Our specialists are on hand to help you with any queries you may have about the planning application process.

Balconies are also a brilliant addition to a commercial property such as a restaurant, hotel or bar. The extension of space allows you to add outdoor seating or bar areas. Take a look at our stainless steel balconies.
