This style is most often seen on flat roofed constructions offering a simple yet attractive option to a more traditionally styled conservatory.

As with any building project, it’s always best to check if you require planning permission before going ahead and installing a wooden conservatory. Check the council’s website to ensure that your proposed design meets all the criteria for planning permission. However, if you are not planning on using your conservatory for an extended period of time, you may not need to apply for planning permission. It’s always best to speak to a conservatory contractor before you begin any new project so that you’re fully aware of all the options available.
