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

    •The garden room is NOT used as a bedroom.
    •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. (Not sure if your property is listed?
    •Is NOT part of a flat, apartment, or tenement.

    If you need to make an application you would need.

    •Plans and elevation of the summer house.
    •Location plan.
    •Application form.
