Pergola advice

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert Hi, I am trying to find guidance on erecting a 3.6m aluminium pergola within 1m of the boundary of our garden. The pergola would be approximately 12m from our house and around 3m tall with a peaked roof.

    Mike.

    This would be similar to planning permission for a garden room and would be classed as permitted development if the following criteria is met.

    •Is located to the rear of the property.
    •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.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
