Location of garden hut

Please say how far a garden shed on my council owned property has to be from my neighbour’s boundary hedge. The hedge is all on his property and is privately owned. Also, how big can my shed be before I need planning permission.
Thank you.

    Hello.

    As long as this is a house and meets the following criteria you would not require planning permission.

    •Is located to the rear of the property (behind the front elevation or elevation that faces a road).
    •It 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 metres sq.
    •Is NOT within the boundary of a listed building.
