Pre fabricated garage

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert I am buying a house in Blantyre and there is an old wooden garage and shed at the side of the property. Do I need planning permission to erect a pre fabricated garage on the same footprint?

    Hi Maureen.

    You can build a garage without planning permission as log as it meets the following criteria.

    •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.
    •Your garage or carport is NOT within the boundary of a listed building.
    •Not part of a flat, apartment, or tenement.

    Note you may also require a building warrant if the garage is over 30m sq.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
