Firstly you need to know that the exempt limit is 40m2 not 25. This must be to the back of the house and not exceed the height of the existing roof lines. From what you have said I can see no reason why you would need planning. However you can call your local council planning department and make an appointment to show them what you want to do and they will tell you on the spot.
My understanding was that 40 xquare meters was for an extension and 25 square meters was the max planning exempt area for a shed/garage, etc.??
You will need to fill out the proper forms and pay the fee (I think it’s â‚¬85) but I think you will be fine. You have to fill this form out and pay the fee not matter what. Even if you are 100% sure it is exempt.
Thanks for that – wasnt aware of this.
