Does anyone know where the height restrictions for sheds under permitted development are generally measured from? i.e if I dig down so my FFL is at what was the ground level, is my 2.4m from that floor level or from the new, lower ground level underneath/outside?
ground level surround ing the structure
Well the front will hopefully be level with a deck, so if I just pile some earth up around the sides then I guess that counts as 'ground level'?
yeah, probably not touching the sides, though
Yeah I'll likely build a small retaining wall at the side to maintiain an air gap and create a small platform for water butts and such.
by the way i'm not a planning consultant, so do check my working, but that's what i understand it to be.
Thanks, that video is really helpful.
I'd check the local planning portal too - I've dug down 30cm so that I can gain height in my garden office, but it's still a little tall.
I did check the local applications though, and it's apparent that the planing officers are more than happy to give people a little leeway.
Cheers, yeah was going to give the local planning office a call/email to ask the question.
Or maybe this...
I could do this forever rather just getting on a building the damn thing.
Might not go the whole width of the garden though, and leave a little space to stash a water butt/compost heap etc.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
