Garage rebuild

Planning Permission For Garage I have an old single garage at the side of my house which starts in line with the rear of the building. My plan is to demolish this garage and rebuild a much bigger garage which will act as a garage/snooker room. However the new build would be 7m long meeting the end of the garden (fields at the rear) and 5m wide. No issue with height as it would meet requirements and there would still be much more than 50% of the garden left. Because of the size would I a) need planning permission and b) a building warrant. Hoping neither since I am replacing an existing garage albeit with a much bigger one? Thank you.

    Hello Mark. Provided that you do not exceed the permitted development limitations with respect to size, height etc, you will not need planning permission. The fact that you are demolishing and replacing an existing building has no bearing on whether panning permission will be required in this instance. Building warrants are not my area of expertise but I am pretty certain that one will be required. Regards. Mike

  2. Hi Mark.

    With regards to building warrant you need a building warrant when a garage is over 30 metres squared.

    Your proposal is 35 metres squared so would require a building warrant.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
