Greenhouse Planning Permission
In the majority of cases planning permission is not required for your greenhouse.
You may require planning permission if you meet any of the criteria below:
- You want to put your greenhouse in the front garden where it will be highly visible to passers-by and it is not replacing an existing garden building.
- You live in an area designated as a National Park or an area of outstanding natural beauty.
- Your house is a listed building.
- The total greenhouse height is larger than 2.5m (8ft3) and is closer than 2m to the edge of the boundary of your property.
- 50% or more of your garden is occupied by garden buildings.
This set of rules is just a guideline, it is not a definitive list. If you’re in any doubt you should contact your local council.
* If you decide to put your greenhouse on a wall, or raised base and the ridge height is over 4m (13’2) or the eaves height (gutter height) is greater than 2.5m (8ft3) then planning permission will be required – As standard none of our greenhouse are this big.
