Rules governing outbuildings apply to sheds, playhouses, greenhouses and garages as well as many other kinds of structures for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of being in a house.

If you are unsure if your planned building falls into the category of ‘outbuildings’ or if you are unsure if planning permission is required, please contact your local planning authority.

Outbuildings are considered not to need planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:

  • Outbuildings must be single storey with a maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres. They can have a maximum overall height of 4 metres if there’s a dual pitched roof or 3 metres for any other roof.
  • If the outbuilding is positioned within 2 metres of your house boundary, the maximum height is 2.5 metres.
  • The outbuilding must have no verandas, balconies or raised platforms (a platform must not exceed 0.3 metres in height).
  • No more than half the area of land around the “original house” can be covered by outbuildings. This includes any extensions to the “original house”.
  • In National Parks, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Sites the maximum area to be covered by buildings, enclosures, containers and pools more than 20 metres from the house to be limited to 10 square metres.
