About Planning Permission

Planning permission is not normally required for our smaller cabins providing it is 5 metres away from the main property, it does not exceed more than 50% of your total garden area and is under 4 metres in height.

You should always check that planning regulations do not apply to your proposed structure before making your purchase - objections from neighbours are often reasons for planning refusal which makes it a good idea to check with your neighbours before you begin.

Timber decks are usually exempt from planning regulations but not always.
Specifically Planning Permission is required where:

The deck is more than 300mm above the ground
If is affects the privacy or value of neighbouring properties

If constructed in a conservation area, national park or attached to a listed building

Building Regulations usually apply to every structure that requires planning permission.

Outbuildings are considered to be permitted development, not needing planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:

No outbuilding on land forward of a wall forming the principal elevation.

Outbuildings and garages to be single storey with maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of four metres with a dual pitched roof or three metres for any other roof.

Maximum height of 2.5 metres in the case of a building, enclosure or container within two metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwelling.

No verandas, balconies or raised platforms.
No more than half the area of land around the "original house" would be covered by additions or other buildings.

In National Parks, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Sites the maximum area to be covered by buildings, enclosures, containers and pools more than 20 metres from house to be limited to 10 square metres.

On designated land buildings, enclosures, containers and pools at the side of properties will require planning permission.

Within the curtilage of listed buildings any outbuilding will require planning permission.

See the UK government website for more information.
