Health warning - it is the responsibility of the customer to check local planning laws and suitability for location. All the advice below is general advice only.
Rules governing outbuildings apply to sheds, greenhouses and garages as well as other ancillary garden buildings such as swimming pools, ponds, sauna cabins, kennels, enclosures (including tennis courts) and many other kinds of structures. Other rules relate to the installation of a satellite dish, the erection of a new dwelling or the erection or provision of fuel storage tanks.
Under new regulations that came into effect on 1 October 2008 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 (i.e. Front of the house next to road)
• Outbuildings and garages with a single floor with maximum eaves (wall) height of 2.5m and maximum overall ridge height of 4m with a dual pitched roof or 3m for any other roof.
• Maximum Ridge Height 2.5m within a 2m of a boundary.
• We interpret this as follows. If you have an Apex Log Cabin – the pitch is a slant and if your cabin is greater than a width of 2m then the highest point (the ridge height of the Apex) will be beyond the 2m rule and therefore a max height of 4m or 3m will apply.
• No verandas, balconies or raised platforms. We believe this is not applicable to our veranda’s as the veranda is less than 300mm from the ground.
• 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 20m from house to be limited to 10m2.
• 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.
*The term "original house" means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.
**Designated land includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
If you want to put up small detached buildings such as a garden shed or summerhouse in your garden, building regulations will not normally apply if the floor area of the building is less than 15m2.
If the floor area of the building is between 15m2 and 30m2, you will not normally be required to apply for building regulations approval providing that the building is either at least 1m from any boundary or it is constructed of substantially non-combustible materials.
In both cases, building regulations do not apply ONLY if the building does not contain any sleeping accommodation.
