    Hi All,

    I live in a conservation area and want to build a summer house in our rear garden as a little play room for the young kids.

    I thought I was ok on the permitted development side of things until I realised the additional rules around a 'designated area'. The one I 'think' I fall foul of is:
    • On designated land* buildings, enclosures, containers and pools at the side of properties will require planning permission. (*Designated land includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites).
    My house is a little odd as we have an extension (built by previous owners) that is connected by a walkway, and sits to the rear and side, of the main house.

    I want to put the outbuilding as per the plan, outlined red (14.2m2 in size and under 2.5m in total height), but am I correct in thinking I actually need full planning permission to do so?

    Welcome any thoughts on this as I only recently spent £600 and wasted 8 weeks (plans and app fee) for an application I never needed (despite the council saying so) so want to avoid a similar experience again.

    Note the current front door is not the original location. It was on the side closest to the main road on the right, which I assume is the 'principle' elevation (moved when this extension was built).

    Thanks
