Planning Permission For a Garden Office
Whether you’re looking to improve your work-life balance, get away from distractions or fit in more exercise and relaxation, a Garden office is the perfect way to take control of those hours that you would otherwise spend commuting. It gives you the freedom to curate a comfortable and personalised space, ensuring your productivity is optimised in a setting that reflects your taste and lifestyle.Source : www.outdoorbuildinggroup.co.uk
What is the most expensive office in the UK?
Depending on the size and type of garden office, you may or not need to apply for planning permission. As a general rule, garden rooms that are less than 2.5m high and 3m from any boundary won’t require permission as they fall under ‘permitted development’. If you’re considering a bigger project, though, it’s always best to check with your local authority before you begin building.
Many garden offices come in kits, often of a log cabin style of interlocking timbers and are relatively quick and easy to build. However, they tend to be less well-insulated and double glazed than a bespoke option.
When choosing a kit, make sure it’s certified FSC and complies with the UK’s Eco-labelling scheme. This will help to ensure the wood you’re using has been sourced in an environmentally responsible manner. You can also install renewable energy systems in your office to reduce its environmental footprint further.
If you choose a bespoke garden office, you’ll have more freedom over the design and specification of your new workspace, including external cladding materials, doors, windows and insulation type. It’s worth seeking out a manufacturer with experience of designing garden offices in order to achieve the highest-quality results.
