Planning Permission

Planning permission for your Green Retreats garden room is not normally required, saving you time and hassle in the creation of your perfect garden room.

At Green Retreats we have taken steps in the design of our garden room buildings to avoid the need for planning permission. The design of our garden buildings allows them to fall within permitted development – much like a garden shed or other small outbuilding.

What’s more, as our garden room buildings do not exceed 30m² internally they do not require building regulations approval – saving you time and hassle!

If you live in a listed building, apartment, maisonette, conservation area or area of outstanding natural beauty you may need to get in touch with your local council or planning authority to apply for approval, as the permitted development rights for your property differ.
