Can I replace my conservatory roof with a tiled roof?

In 2020, the planning regulations changed to allow people to change their conservatory roof to a tiled conservatory roof without the need for planning permission as they are covered under what is known as ‘permitted development’. That is great news to you, we know.

That means that if you want to change your conservatory roof from a glass conservatory roof to a tiled conservatory roof, you will not need to apply for planning permission.

Regardless of this, you will still need to apply for building regulations. This is because a solid conservatory roof is deemed to be an actual permanent extension, rather than a glass conservatory roof or an orangery that is covered under ‘temporary structures’, meaning they can be exempt from needing planning approval and building regulations approval.

The good thing about applying for building regulations is that it will give you the peace of mind that your existing conservatory framework is structurally sound and can support the weight of your new tiled roof.
