We can work off your drawings or we can assist you with drawings most garden rooms will come under permitted development and will not need planning or building control because they are not considered as permanent structures.
Most cart lodges, car barns and granny annexes are carried out under permitted development but because they are over 2.5m high, and are permanent structures you will need to submit plans to your local authority and you will need building control from your local authority as this will be a permanent structure and will need drainage and possibly living areas will need insolation lighting heating and other services all of which can be carried out, by our accredited employees and contractors on behalf of CLS.
