The importance of planning permission for your garden office

It's always worth reminding people considering going down the garden office route that it's crucial to get all the paperwork in place before setting up. As reported in the Bucks Free Press, a shed in Chalfont St Peter will have to come down after neighbours of the owner complained to Chiltern District Council's planning committee about how it was intruding on their home life.
 According to the report "numerous phone calls" were being made from the 2.54m shed structure which affected the couple's health and privacy. The councillors were divided but voted to refuse a retrospective planning application because the proximity of the building to the neighbour’s fence “contravenes our general conditions”.

As always, it's a good idea to take a look at the Planning Portal before going to talk to your local planners.
