New build house and garage

New build house and garage

We are about to submit a planning application for a bungalow. We are undecided on the size and location of the garage until the bungalow is complete. Do we need to seek permission for a garage on a totaly new build taking all the known criteria into account.

    Hi Sally.

    If you build the garage at the same time as the house i.e. before you occupy the property you would have to apply for planning permission.

    As soon as you occupy the house your permitted development rights will apply and as long as you meet the permitted development criteria for garage you would NOT require planning permission.

    Please visit the garage page for more details on permitted development.

    Good luck with your project.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission

    PS you could show a proposed garage location on the drawings and amend at a later date if you decided this location was not suitable.
