Garden Office Planning Permission

Garden Office Planning Permission

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert Hi

I am looking to build a brick and slate single story office in my garden which will be in a similar style to the existing house. According to page 43 of the Scottish Governments “Guidance on Householder permitted development document” document (http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/0038/00388268.pdf) I do not need planning permission however South Ayrshire council have informed my that I do. Please see: (http://ww6.south-ayrshire.gov.uk:81/bumblebee-web/centralDistribution.do?action=dispatch&caseType=Application&caseNo=14/00128/APP).

Could you tell me if I really do need planning permission?

Thanks
Stephen Jarvis

    Hi Stephen. It does look from the Council’s website that the building could have been regarded as permitted development, but now you have applied it might be best to let the application run its course. Whilst if you could now argue the case, and you chose to withdraw the application, you probably wouldn’t get your application fee back anyway! I see there has been one objection from a neighbour, but based on legal as opposed to planning grounds. The Council could not refuse the application because of something that may or may not be in your deeds. Have you spoken to the Planning Officer about your application, and has he indicted that he is proposing to recommend approval? Regards. Mike Hyde
