    Totally random question about Planning Permission!

    Looking for a quick answer, & can't phone the local county planning dept at the mo as embroiled in a bit of a long standing bit of argybargy (don't ask)....

    Anyway, would I need pp if I stuck one of these 20' babies in my back garden and used it as a workshop:

    If we're allowed to have one we'll crane it in as it'll have to go over the garden wall.

    We've been looking at these nice little 10' jobbies as well:

    My understanding is because it would be over 2m high and provisionally a permanent addition to your house I think you would. Presumably you're preparing a robust concrete foundation to place it on?

    It'll stand on a concrete plinth where a shed used to stand.

    I had to get it to install a pre-fab garage. Even though it is still classified as "temporary" building, the height of it determined I had to.

    However, while investigating this (about 5 years ago now), I also found, that technically, a shed, green house, fence beyond the front of the house (eg front garden) and a sky dish, all need written planning permission!!

    It was just a standard form from the Council, not payment required etc.

    It used to be the case that any "development" above 50m required permission with few exceptions. I would expect that if your neighbours complained, you wouldn't be on paticularly stable ground.

    That said, I dealt with this sort of stuff 25 years ago, and lots may have changed.

    The container would :-)

    I think for the time it took for mine, 2 weeks or so, its prob worth the effort. Then at least you have some official permission if the locals have issues.

    Don't think there would be any complaints as it would be along the side of the house and the neighbours can't see that bit of it. And I'd soundproof it so they wouldn't be able to hear me banging away....

    I don't know about planning permission. But what about all the illegal immigrants that will be hiding in it. You may be done for trafficking!!!

    Our caretaker did the exact same thing in his back garden and he lives on site in his bungalo.... he says he did all the checking and he says no you dont.

    Its not a perminant structure, even though he doesnt plan to move it.

    @tech_guy:

    This may help you as every council works from this:
    The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995

    I know from past experience

    Hope this helps.
