Decking

Putting up decking, or other raised platforms, in your garden is permitted development, not needing an application for planning permission, providing:
  • The decking is no more than 30cm above the ground
  • Together with other extensions, outbuildings etc, the decking or platforms cover no more than 50 per cent of the garden area.

(Please note: the permitted development allowances described here apply to houses not flats, maisonettes or other buildings.)

 

Fencing, Gates & Garden Walls

You will need to apply for planning permission if you wish to erect or add to a fence, wall or gate and:
  • It would be over 1 metre high and next to a highway used by vehicles (or the footpath of such a highway); or over 2 metres high elsewhere; or
  • Your right to put up or alter fences, walls and gates is removed by an article 4 direction or a planning condition; or
  • Your house is a listed building or in the curtilage of a listed building.
  • The fence, wall or gate, or any other boundary involved, forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building or its curtilage.
You will not need to apply for planning permission to take down a fence, wall, or gate, or to alter, maintain or improve an existing fence, wall or gate (no matter how high) if you don't increase its height. In a conservation area, however, you might need conservation area consent to take down a fence, wall or gate.
