Playhouse Height

Playhouse Height

HI,

We are planning on buying a large playhouse for our backgarden and wondered if it would need planning permission because of the height?

Height 2.43m to Apex of roof
Will be at least 3m from a boundary
Will be built on decking that is roughly 0.2m off the ground. (so apex of roof 2.63m from ground level)

Thank You

Craig

    Hi Craig.

    As long as the playhouse meets the following criteria it would not require planning permission.

    •NOT used as a bedroom.
    •Is located to the rear of the property.
    •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.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission
