Firstly you must ask yourself “Do I need planning permission?”
Here are the set rules when choosing to build a shed:
1* - Planning regulations for sheds state that:
Another is will it upset your neighbours? good neighbours are a real credit to have, if it upsets them size wise which could be an eyesore, then it may spark up council visits and an investigation into the size of the shed.
If you choose to build a shed then these rules must be followed otherwise it may result in a costly tear down of the shed by law. Providing you follow the rules above, your shed is perfectly legal. All purchased sheds will follow these rules but if you choose to create your own shed then you need to do the calculations. We do not recommend that you build your own shed unless you have knowledge in construction or have someone oversee the build with the knowledge. Remember, Safety over cost.
Contact your local council today if you have any enquiries as such, they are there to help you.
