Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert

Hi I have an old shell of a garage next to my house, the roof collapsed and has been removed, I would like to rebuild it and put a new roof on it, it is not and will not be commercial. I intend to build it to same dimensions the only change will be the size of the door entrance. Do I require planning permission

    Hello Ed.

    As long as it meets the following criteria you would not require planning permission.

    •Located to the rear of the property.
    •Does NOT exceed 4 metres in height. (3 metres to eaves)
    •Any part of the building within 1 metre of the boundary does NOT exceed 2.5 metres in height.
    •The building footprint is NOT greater than 50% of the properties outside space.
    •Is NOT in a conservation area, unless it is under 4 square metres. (e.g. 2 metres by 2 metres)
    •Your garage or carport is NOT within the boundary of a listed building.
    •Not part of a flat, apartment, or tenement.

    You may also require a building warrant depending on what work you are carrying out.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
