When planning a porch, there a 3 factors to consider:-

The ground floor area of the proposed porch

Its height

Distance from and boundary and highway

Provided the structure would not exceed 3 square metres (when measured externally), would be no higher than 3 metres and would be located no closer than 2 metres from any boundary and highway, then planning permission would not be required. If you live in a Listed Building, you will require to apply for Listed Building Consent.

In certain circumstances however, your "porch" may be of a size where it is not considered a "porch" structure anymore but an extension in its own right by virtue of its size for example. Normally, if you do not meet the criteria set out within the Order, you would require planning permission. However, if you chose to add a porch to the side of your property for example, provided you met the relevant criteria, your proposal may well be considered as permitted development which means you would not require planning permission.
