Do I Need Planning Permission?
Along as your house is not a listed building or in a designated area, then it is unlikely that you will need planning permission. However there are a few key points to be aware of:
If any part of your garden building is to be situated within 2 meters of your property boundary, then it must be no taller than 2.5 meters.
If your garden building can be situated more than 2 meters from your property boundary, then it can be a maximum of 3 meters tall if it has a flat roof, and 4 meters tall if it has a dual pitched roof.
Your garden building can not be situated on land that is forward of a wall forming the principal elevation of your house.
Garden buildings must be single storey and not contain sleeping accommodation.
