Do I need to obtain planning permission for a garden room?

In certain circumstances planning permission is required by Law but generally our Garden Rooms are designed within the allowed dimensions for domestic dwellings. Positioning restrictions may apply and properties located on heritage or listed sites will need to gain advice from the local planning authority. Please speak to our sales team for further guidance.

I need my garden room to be secure as it will be used as an office, how secure are they?

Our range of rooms is designed with security in mind and you can be assured that all windows and doors meet industry standards and pass home insurance levels of security. We can advise on upgrading of features should you require it.

Will the garden room need insulating?

No! Our development of the Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) technology used to construct all Garden rooms and storage units has built in extremely efficient insulating properties during manufacture. SIP’s panels are used throughout the building, floors walls and ceilings.

Can I put a garden room anywhere on my property?

There are some restrictions attached to Planning Regulations and common access routes but generally the answer is yes. Consideration of utilities routing needs to be calculated.
