The majority of summer houses do not require planning permission. But consent is needed for any summer houses which cover over half the garden.


Or, it's not for domestic use, it's over 3 metres high with a pent roof or 4 metres high with an apex roof.

A garden summer house can be used as your very own special space. Use it as a studio for writing, painting or other crafting activities. Or it can simply become a space for relaxation and leisure with your loved ones.

Put it in an area that is free from aerial obstructions, such as trees. Although trees can offer shade, an overhanging branch can block the much-needed sun. Plus, when it falls off, it can damage the structure, especially the roof.
