Calling any planners or architects.

Want to build a 30m2 garage /shed in my garden.(know thats the max permitted footprint.)

Can I just start it or do I have to get in touch with the local authority (Argyll and Bute Council)

Previous house planning dealings have been a nightmare;

A prehistoric system of sending silly pre planning applications and waiting weeks or more for any response.

Seems you're not allowed to have a one to one anymore.

So any advice from anyone would be much appreciated.

I don't know the answer for Scotland but have a search for the Scottish government planning portal. If its like the one for England and Wales it will have all the answers you need.

The English and Welsh site is under www.planningportal.gov.uk might be some links to the Scottish version on it

In reply to andymac: I think this was discussed on here before, and I think it is the height that is more important and how close to your boundary you want to put it.

So really is it going to impinge on your neighbour, stealing light etc ?

No. Miles away. Single storey.and will not be slightly set back from house frontage.

Planners ,quite rightly ,don't like garages being forward from houses .

Right ,think I shall go and get the digger started.

Cheers Jim.

Most likely you will need permission.
