Frequently asked questions

Do I need planning permission for my garden studio?

For most garden studios, planning permission will not be required.
Some of the basic requirements are set out below, but these are only a guide.
We will make sure that either your studio does not need permission, or help you through the process.

  1. Your garden studio should not be less than 2m from a boundary.
  2. Your garden studio should not take up more than 50% of the area of the garden.
  3. Your garden studio should not be more than 4m to the apex of a piched roof, or 3m for a flat roof.
  4. Your garden studio should not be more than 30 sq/m in area
  5. You will require planning permission if your studio is within the curtilage of a listed building.

How much will it cost?

As a rough guide your garden studio will cost £1270 per sq/m including vat
i.e. 3m x 4m = 12 sq/m 12sq/m x £1270 = £15240
