Do I Need Planning Permission For My Garden Structure?

If you are tempted by one of our high-quality summer houses or garden rooms but are worried about the implication of planning permission, let us take that worry away.

Permitted Development

When built right, summer houses and garden rooms do not need planning permission as they fall into the category of ‘Permitted Development’.

While outbuildings are considered to be in the realms of permitted development, there are also certain limitations. You can find out more about the rules that apply to the construction of garden structures and outbuildings by clicking here.
