You’ll be happy to know that the majority of garden building projects carried out at properties in Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas don’t require planning permission. If you’re thinking about adding a brand-new shed, garden office or summer house to your grounds, our team are experienced at managing the entire process, from the initial design to the final installation of garden sheds and outdoor builds. We also offer advice about any building regulations and permits required in advance.
A garden building, such as a garden office, summer house, garage, workshop or most types of garden sheds, don’t require planning permission when they are independent from your Sevenoaks property. Whereas a summer house with a bedroom needs to be approved and inspected for health and safety codes to be fulfilled.
Here are some guidelines for homeowners in Sevenoaks to bear in mind, enabling their garden building designs to stay within the UK regulations:
While these apply to general residences, listed buildings or Historic England heritage sites in Sevenoaks require planning permission for any kind of renovation or construction work to be carried out.
At Gabriel’s Sheds Ltd we will discuss designs and plans with our Sevenoaks clients and provide invaluable advice from the outset. From an initial site visit, our team will consult on the location, size and purpose of the garden building to determine if planning permission is required.
While we specialise in creating bespoke garden sheds, our master craftsmen can construct a beautiful summer house or garden office to enhance your garden. If you want to add electrical installations, the local Sevenoaks council authorities will need to be informed. Any electrical work must be carried out by an electrician with a Part P Electrical Competent Person Scheme qualification, in compliance with IEE wiring regulations and British Standards 7671.
All our garden sheds and garden buildings are expertly fitted, using high-quality timber products. As part of our complete service, our team will prepare the grounds and lay the foundations for safe and level installations. We will also line and insulate interiors and roofs for optimal heating and waterproof capabilities.
