In brief, outbuildings are now (since October 2008) covered by permitted development rights – a type of planning classification which says that you have automatic planning permission without application subject to certain restrictions. Outbuildings and garages to be single storey with maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of four metres with a dual pitched roof or three metres for any other roof. Maximum height of 2.5 metres in the case of a building, enclosure or container within two metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse (that means the boundary of the whole plot). We are thinking of putting a 12×12 shed at the front of our property for storage, we have a very large open front area which is not over looked by anyone as it is surrounded by large trees, is this ok? Hi Lisa, According to the rules above and the info you provide, no – as it would be in front of the house and so you would need planning permission. Unless the context otherwise requires, any reference in this Order to the height of a building or of plant or machinery shall be construed as a reference to its height when measured from ground level; and for the purposes of this paragraph “ground level” means the level of the surface of the ground immediately adjacent to the building or plant or machinery in question or, where the level of the surface of the ground on which it is situated or is to be situated is not uniform, the level of the highest part of the surface of the ground adjacent to it. Therefore the height of the shed would be measured from the highest ground level adjacent to it.
My neighbour has just put up a childs play shed which is two storeys high, it is also sitting onto of decking and is right next to the fence that separates our garden. Can you advise if this is the same legislation which governs outbuildings built on a slope?
Any view on legislation that applies to a shed that is closer than 600mm from a boundary at which point it measures 2.83M high measured above immediately adjacent ground level but being built on sloping site (upwards from boundary) is only just above permitted height at its furthest distance from boundary, approx. 1) are eves measured upto the finished underside of the eves, ie where plastic guttering sits? 2) if you have built on a concrete base that sits 6inchs above the ground (due to unevan ground) can you then level up the surrounding ground soil to loose the foundation height – hence giving you a new ground to measure the 2.5m upto the eves?
3) If building more than 2m away from boundaries and 4m high you can have a 30sqm building. I have a simialr problem only my in very close to boundary and is 2.9 mtres if I measure total high. If you landscaped your garden imported x ammount of soil which effectively then raised the ground level you could exeed that which would apply to neighbours.
We would like to build fairy big Shed at teh very back of our garden, 7*10meters, it will not be even one third of our garden. I just wondered if its legal to have it a meter from out back garden fence and then only 30 centemeters from our right and left fence?
I have a neighbour that as put a shed up in her garden where my garage backs onto, The trouble I have now is the shed is that close it as blocked the light out and I can no longer open my window in the garage. When you buy or sell a house in the UK you need a solicitor to prepare and exchange the contract of sale. You might assume that you don’t need permission to install a simple garden shed or garage, but there are occasions when planning permission or building regulations are required. No outbuilding can be closer to the road than the part of the original house nearest to the road or any point 20m from the road (whichever is nearest). Outbuildings and garages should be less than 4m in height with a ridged roof, or 3m otherwise. No more than half the area of land around the original house is to be covered by additions or other buildings. If the outbuilding is greater than 10 cubic metres in size and is within 5m of a house, it is considered an extension, not an outbuilding. In National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and within the area immediately surrounding a listed building, the cubic content of the building should not be bigger than 10m?. And all you need to do is to seize the handle of your newly implemented enhance well being. Carriage house plans and carriage houses, commonly referred to as garage apartments, feature car storage with living quarters above.

Builders raised the soil level next to my house by building a two foot boundary wall which was then infilled to level off the garden they then installed a legal limit six foot fence which meant I then had an eight foot fence at the lower end and six six at the house end, new neighboures then erected two new sheds which stand nine foot high when viewed from my property, complaints were overuled by the building authorities as they deemed the builder to be within legal building requirements.

My nosey neighbour has reported us to planning who seem to be unable to tell me if I need plans. Over the years we have completed hundreds of garage designs for Planning Permission and Building Regulations. I have openly told them that we have on accasion bred and sold kittens from the cats, this is why i think they have neglected to give me an answer.
