    Hi all,

    I want to extend my brick garage with timber frame workshop, this would mean the floor area was over 30m2, do i need PP or just BR ?

    If i kept the wall up between the garage and timber workshop and maybe had double doors, would it still be classed as a single floor ?

    Regards,
    Adam

    Whether or not it needs p.p depends on various factors such as height, proximity to the boundary, and proportion of curtilage space occupied by the building.
    As for Building Control, a detached structure over 30 sq m would need building regs approval. Your idea of separating the structures by double doors would not be accepted, as building control would still count it as one structure. Your new build would have to be completely detached to be exempt.
