  4. Do you need planning permission for railings?

    Do you need planning permission for railings?
    Railings are one of the most common features that are added to the front of properties. They add an element of sophistication, which can’t be achieved with a wooden fence and are far easier to maintain than a hedge. However, as a reputable manufacturer of wrought iron railings, we are frequently asked about the rules regarding railings and, more specifically, if planning permission is required. In this article, we will discuss some of the points that you need to take into consideration. Where will the railing be installed? The positioning and the height of the railings is the critical point that needs to be considered. The general rule of thumb is that if the railings are to be fitted around the boundary of your property, and that boundary is within three metres from a road, in most cases, you won’t

    What makes gate design traditional or modern?
    We get several clients coming to us who know that they want a wrought iron gate, but they are unsure of the design that they would like. We understand that this can be challenging, and you need to take several factors into account, not least the age and configuration of your property.

However, what makes a design traditional or contemporary, and which one is suitable for your home? What gates

    Is metal a good option for driveway gates?
    The most commonly used materials for driveway gates are metal and wood, and this has been something that has remained consistent for decades. While both options have excellent features which would complement most properties, an increasing number of people are selecting metal versions. Once again, this can again present different choices, with wrought iron, stainless steel and aluminium appealing for differing reasons. However, for the ultimate blend of classic and contemporary, made to measure wrought iron gates are arguably the best option. They provide a combination of beauty and security that can’t be replicated by other materials and give property owners peace of mind and the pleasure of knowing that their property is pleasing to the eye.
