Over the last few years outbuildings and summer houses have gained a lot of popularity. Whether it is used as a gym or games room to storage only, planning permission is generally not required. The use of the outbuilding must be used for the enjoyment of the house and NOT as a rental building. Most outbuildings fall within lawful development however, planning permission would be required if the property is within a conservation area or adjacent to a listed building.

WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT YOU APPLY FOR A LAWFUL DEVELOPMENT CERTIFICATE AND BUILDING CONTROL BEFORE YOU START BUILDING WORK.
