Garden Building Planning Rules

Planning permission is not typically needed as our buildings are classed as a "portable building", however there maybe planning requirements that need to be followed. It is your responsibility to check that planning rules are satisfied for your intended building design, size and location.

You should check with your local planning officer for further information.

Situations where planning permission maybe required:

  • The new building would be nearer to a highway than the existing house unless there is a clearance of at least 20 meters
  • The new building takes up more than 50% of the garden
  • The new building is not for domestic use
  • If you have a listed building
  • If you live in a conservation area
  • The new building has a volume greater than 10 cubic meters and is within 5 meters of the house, this may be classed as an extension
  • A single pitch roof exceeds 3 meters or a ridge exceeds 4 meters from the highest ground adjacent to the new building.

We suggest that you keep neighbours informed of your intention to erect a building in your garden, even if you don't need planning permission.
