Planning Permission For A Stable Hello,
Our new neighbours are building large stables in their garden completely blocking the right hand side view from our garden of the countryside and mountain views.
We haven’t been asked or even informed.
Is this allowed with planning permission and how do we challenge this please? We are selling our house and it ruin half the view which is why many like the house. Very sad.
Thanks so much. Its near Kinross in rural Scotland.

    Clare.

    You can erect building is your garden like stables, sheds, garages etc… however there are regulations these have to meet to be classed as permitted development (not requiring planning permission).

    If the following is met it would not require planning permission.

    (a) It consists of a dwelling.
    (b) Any part of the development would be forward of a wall forming part of the principal elevation or side elevation where that elevation fronts a road.
    (c) The height of the eaves would exceed 3 metres.
    (d) Any part of the development would exceed 4 metres in height.
    (e) Any part of the development within 1 metre of the boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse would exceed 2.5 metres in height.
    (f) As a result of the development the area of ground covered by development within the front or rear curtilage of the dwellinghouse (excluding the original dwellinghouse and any hard surface or deck) would exceed 50% of the area of the front or rear curtilage respectively (excluding the ground area of the original dwellinghouse and any hard surface or deck).
    (g) In the case of land in a conservation area or within the curtilage of a listed building, the resulting building would have a footprint exceeding 4 square metres.

    If the development does not meet this you can speak to your local councils planning enforcement officer who will be able to asset you in ensuring the development meet the above criteria.

    Note the above applies if this is a private stable in a private garden, permission would be required if this was a business or on open land.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
