Outbuilding Planning

A home office, a home gym, a teenage pad, an escape for guests, parents or grandparents, a summerhouse, a disabled-friendly space, a hive-haus, a sauna-room, a steam-room; extra storage, even just a simple shed...

An outbuilding can make a fantastic addition to a home with very little downside. Outbuildings are often lawful to build without planning permission, but generally subject to certain conditions.

But take care! We are frequently contacted by homeowners, builders and developers who read the rules and believed that their outbuildings were lawful, but alas now know better. Exceptions and exemptions to the rules abound. Some of our happiest (and most relieved!) clients are of this sort, but of course prevention is always better than cure.

Why not call us and check. Either we help corroborate what you already know, or we alert you to a potential problem. No commitment and no fee. We're happy to help.
