In most cases, our standard garden room buildings (up to 30sq metres) do not require planning permission as they are built to comply with permitted development rights. However, rooms that are ‘habitable’ such as bedrooms, do require planning permission and building regulations. We recommend individuals checking they have permitted development rights first, Custom Garden Rooms are on hand to help if needed.
Put simply, a garden annexe is a ‘habitable room’ meaning it contains living accommodation. Due to this, planning permission will need to be obtained and building regulations approval will also be required, but don’t worry we can help with all this. The construction of the building is also modified to adhere to all of the above.

Whether you need planning permission not, we always provide clients with detailed drawings of our design idea prior to work commencing. Planning permission is only required for habitable spaces, i.e. a garden annexe, but if you are using a garden room for your business, this may also require prior planning permission.
