Super Spaces garden rooms do not usually require a planning application as they are classed as outbuildings, so you’re allowed to build one as long as you comply with certain rules.

That’s as long as you have permitted development rights at your home or the area you live in. You might not have permitted development rights if:

  • your home is a listed building
  • your home is in a designated area (eg a National Park, area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), conservation area or World Heritage Site)
Planning Permission Approved

Check with your local planning office if you’re not sure. Flats and maisonettes don’t have permitted development rights. The rules are the same whether you live in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales.

In general, most garden rooms don’t require planning permission. Garden rooms have pre-approved planning permission as long as your room is built subject to a number of limits and conditions which are:

1) That the garden room is no higher than 2.5m from the bottom of the building to the top of the roof (if within 2m of boundary)

2) That you do not take up more than 50% of your garden area with this or any other buildings

3) It is not to be used for living or sleeping accommodation

4) It doesn’t have a balcony, veranda or raised platform.

5) It isn’t self-contained living accommodation.

Super Spaces garden rooms, offices, studios, and buildings have been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the permitted development regulations.

All Super Spaces buildings are manufactured to meet the 2.5m height planning restriction unless you specially request a larger building constructed.

For peace of mind we recommend that customers contact their local council planning department for specific advice.
