Hello there, we are wanting to build a 30ft X 20ft wooden garage in our 1 acre garden. Our house is in the country with no nabours close by and our house is on an unclassified country lane. Our house sits in the middle of the plot but the front of the house doesn't face the road the side does. Looking at the planning portal suggests that no planning is needed as the building would be at the rear of the property, over 2 meters from the boundary being the country lane, under 4 meters in height and have an eves height of under 2.5 meters. Our architect said planning would be needed as you can't build closer to the road than the closest part of the house Of which the garage would be but it is to be at the rear of the house. All very confusing, our local planning council herefordshire no longer offer free advice. they charge 172 pounds just to ask which means sending detailed drawings and plans.
