Do I need planning permission?
You won’t need planning permission for any of our standard range sheds to be located in a back garden. However, a front garden has different planning rules. In discussions with planning officers, any structure placed in a front garden technically requires planning consent. However, their advice has been that in practice, action is only taken if there are legitimate complaints from neighbours. We recommend looking along your street to see if there are any other structures in gardens and to talk to your neighbours. Unless you live in a strict conservation area, where there are no other structures in front gardens or if you have neighbours that you think might object, then it is unlikely that you will need to seek planning permission. On the whole most local councils support cycling initiatives.
If you are at all unsure, we recommend contacting your local planning office. In the event that you do need to submit a planning application, we are more than happy to supply you with the required planning drawings.
