Do I Need Planning Permission for an Oak Framed Garage?
One of the first things that come to mind with an oak framed garage is the requirements for planning permission or building permits.
Under UK planning laws, garages are in a category called ‘outbuildings’ along with sheds, greenhouses and other outer structures. Though the rules do differ dependent on the type of property, for instance if it is a listed building or if it is in an area of natural beauty, the general rules are that you are not allowed to build one at the side of your property or that garages can’t be more than 10m2 if the structure is 20 meters away from an outer wall of the property.
Generally, all outbuildings are classed as “permitted developments” which don’t need planning permission as long as the following rules are adhered to:
- The oak framed garage isn’t in front of the “main elevation” of the house – this usually means the front of a house but it can also mean the side or even the back of the house but as a general rule of thumb it is the side which faces the road.
- The oak framed garage cannot be used as a living space e.g. a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen.
- All of your outbuildings combined cannot take up more than 50% of the total area of land around your property.
- Wooden garages should be single storey.
- The garage must be positioned within 2m of the boundaries of the house e.g. the outer fences.
- If the garage is to have a dual pitched roof then it can be no taller than 2.5m at the eaves and 4m from the ridge. Similarly, if it is a single pitched roof then it must be 2.5m at the eaves and 3m at the ridge.
- The garage must not have any decking, veranda or raised platform.
