    My house was built in the 1980's. For some reason the first two houses of the terrace are raised up and are around a metre higher than the others. I understand that the a single-storey conservatory maximum height is four metres but where is that measured from? Is it measured externally from the ground, taking into account the extra meter? And where is it measured to? Is it right to the top of the conservatory including any decorative features?

    Building a conservatory would probably annoy my neighbours because it would be quite high. Do I need planning permission - the local company say I don't but I'm not sure.
