Some of the most popular questions we are asked about our garden rooms is if they need planning permission.
Generally, if the garden room is under 2.5 metres in height and is not located in front of the main building, planning permission is not required. However, if the garden room is higher than 2.5 metres or is located in front of the main building, planning permission may be necessary.
Additionally, if the garden room is intended for use as a separate dwelling, such as a granny annex or holiday home, planning permission is required. It’s important to check with your local planning authority to confirm whether planning permission is required for your specific garden room project.
It’s also worth noting that if your property is located in a conservation area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or a National Park, additional restrictions may apply, and planning permission may be necessary even for smaller garden rooms.
In summary, while garden rooms are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, it’s important to check with your local planning authority to ensure that you have the necessary permissions before starting your project. This will help you avoid any potential delays, expenses, or legal issues down the line.
