Planning permission and building regulations throughout the UK
Planning Permission deals with how a building looks and its impact on its surroundings and environment. Planning permission is required for any new construction in the UK, however recent changes in regulations have relaxed the rules, allowing small outbuildings to be erected without requiring formal planning consent if they follow certain conditions. Planning rules vary slightly depending on where you are, but A1 Sheds have listed the main points below. These should only be used as a guide, and we recommend that you check with your local authority for the most up-to-date information.
