Whilst Planning Permission will be at the forefront of your mind, you also need to consider whether your build needs to comply with Building Regulations.
garden room building regulations
Booths Garden Studios keep honing the design of their QC range of garden rooms, and have recently launched the QC6 model which is Building Regulation Compliant.
A recent conversation with Executive Garden Rooms flagged up an important issue that we would like to highlight with garden room buyers – the Building Control rules relating to siting a garden room within 1 meter of the boundary of the garden.
Both of these projects required Building Control sign off, as they have been inspected and signed off by Building Control, the clients will be able to include them in their property valuation this increases the value and marketability of the property.
Planning permission guidelines for garden rooms are well documented, but the Building Regulations relating to garden rooms are not so clear.
