    Hi all,

    Can I build 2 30m2 detached buildings which would be 2 metres apart in my garden without planning permission or building regulations.

    Ah thank you for your reply, do I have to let anyone know I am building the buildings or can I just go ahead and build them?

    Providing they’ll meet PD and the BR exemption criteria, then no. And just for Woody’s sake... you can apply for a LDC/CoL application should you want the PD situation confirmed. It’s optional but is there if required.

    Hi All, as above but thinking of putting a shower room in the garden room as it will be an office and gym, what permission do I need for this or can it just be done. I know I need to get permission from the water company to connect to the sewer

    I would suggest you contact B Control direct as you are installing a shower, whilst it is still an exempt building, some LA's take the (wrong) view it is not because of the shower.
    This used to put me in the position of asking for an app for such work and when asked why, I then had to justify something I knew to be wrong.

    Why would you contact BC at all for something that the regs show is exempt? Unless BC are already involved why bother to raise the issue in the first place?

    To check their interpretation, some authorities take the view (wrongly) that as the building has a shower installed it is not exempt, so you need to check if that is the case.

    How ridiculous. If the LABC ‘interpret’ the rules differently to what they actually are, then that’s their issue, not the applicants. If everything was being defined by interpretation, then what would be the point in having any rules, regulations or policies.
