Building a new garage onto your home, in your garden or elsewhere can be a great addition to your home. Not only will it provide an off-road, safe parking space, it will also add value to your home! But, if this is something you want to do you will have to follow building rules and regulations, which can be confusing to understand and put you off the idea of your build. To help you understand the rules when it comes to building your new garage we have simplified them from you.

Garage Building Rules and Regulations
If your garage is not going to be higher than 4 meters and does not take up more than half of the land around the original property, then you will probably not need planning permission. This reasonably sized rule also applies for any other outbuilding including sheds and glasshouses, as they are considered as permitted development.

However, as always there are exceptions where you may need to get planning permission in order to build your new garage. So we suggest that the best plan of action is to contact your Local Planning Authority so that you can be sure that your build will be allowed. If you need any more details on this topic then you can visit the governments Home Owners Alliance Planning Portal for further details of planning exemptions for outbuildings.
