    As long as you meet the following criteria you would not need 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.
    •Is not part of a flat, apartment, or tenement.
