Planning permission and Shed of the Year


Planning permission is among the search terms that brings the most visitors to Shedworking because it's such a key issue for shedworkers and garden offices. The Guardian has an interesting piece on how this affects last year's winner of the Shed of the Year competition. Here's a snippet:
Is a shed still a shed if it is also a piano bar, a distillery and a small farm shop? Highland council will have to decide after it emerged that the recent winner of Shed of the Year did not have planning permission to change from a disused hen coop to a small enterprise of gin-making and egg-selling... Shed conversions mostly do not require planning permission if they remain in the original building, but the council needs to be informed if they are going to be used for commercial purposes, even on a small scale.
