Do I need planning permission for an Asgard shed?
We are frequently asked by customers, as to whether they need planning permission for their Asgard shed. You’ll find that in most circumstances, that you won’t need planning permission for your Asgard shed. However, there are some exceptions, such as conservation areas. We have also found that some boroughs of London will not let you have a shed at the front of a property without seeking Council Approval.

General: Planning Permission and Building Regulation approval isn’t required if:
- Sheds and greenhouses do not cover more than half of the area of the garden; not including the area occupied by the house.
- It contains no sleeping accommodation and the floor area does not exceed 15 square metres.
- No point is less than one metre from a boundary.
- It is not more than 3m high for a flat roof, or 4m with a ridged roof.
- No part projects beyond any wall of the house that faces a road. The outbuilding is for use only by those who occupy the house.
- Building Regulations do state that structures built of combustible material (i.e. a wooden shed) must be at least 2 metres from the main house.
