Many prospective garden room buyers are put off the idea if they find they need to apply for planning permission, but it needn’t be a stressful, time consuming process as your supplier will handle it for you, and applying for planning permission may just mean you get a better garden room than you first thought, as was the case of a recent Sanctum Garden Studios client:
Sanctum’s Leicestershire customer originally wanted a 3.6m x 2.4m Studio in their garden. After realising that planning permission was required (due to living in a conservation village) they came back to Sanctum saying:- “ If we are have to go through the rigmarole of obtaining planning permission, we may as well go for a structure that would be big enough for us to run our business from it!”. With this in mind, a 6.0m x 3.0m Contemporary Studio with overhanging roof and offset French doors was installed and the customer was delighted that he had changed his mind commenting
[quote]Well we are delighted with the result. We can honestly say that’s is one of the best investments we’ve ever made! — and is already saving the business money.”[/quote]
Sanctum have plenty of experience in supporting customers through the planning process if it is required (normally it isn’t as their Studios are less than the 2.5m height restriction). Don’t be put off if you do require permission because you live in an area of outstanding beauty, a listed building or a conservation area. Sanctum will guide you and provide you with everything you need to ensure your application goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.
