Most garden rooms can be designed to fit in your garden without planning permission as they usually fall within permitted development criteria.

We generally keep your dens under 2.5m with a flat roof, as that enables us to utilise your garden space by building within a metre of your property boundary.

Should you have a sufficiently large garden and are able to build your den more than 2m from the boundary then you can build to a maximum height of 4 metres to the top of the ridge.

Additionally we find that talking through your plans with your local planning department is a great way to make sure that you keep within the rules. Of course we are happy to do this on your behalf.

Building Regulations:

As a general rule, building regulations will not apply to your den. However should you wish to use your den as a holiday let or residence you will need to comply with current regulations. This involves an inspector from the council making sure the building is built to a standard fit for human habitation. At Urban Dens we are more then happy to help you on the need for either planning permission or building control and have a wealth of experience in the industry to ensure that no rules are broken. Please call us to discuss your plans so that we are able to guider you properly.
