What are the planning rules for garden buildings?
You will not normally need planning permission for garden buildings, but there are some rules to follow. For example, it must be a single-storey building, and the maximum height of the eaves is 2.5 metres. The maximum overall height is 3 metres, but if it has a dual-pitched roof, the maximum is 4 metres. There are a few other requirements to meet, but please ask us if you are unsure.
