We viewed a house today. Back garden is tiered and decked. The garage roof needs redoing and backs onto the garden.
Lovely south-facing garden. I can't help but think that the garage roof would make a lovely terrace.
Would it need planning?
Or rather, would it need pp if I didnt bother with rails/edging?
Wales has its own GPDO.
The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015
You will need to read through Schedule 2 Part 1 quite carefully to see if what you are contemplating is granted planning permission, or whether an application will need to be made to the local planning authority.
Thanks for reminding me, I keep intending to send you an email.
About this garage roof ... could using it as a patio be construed to fall under the same height restrictions as decking? Maybe that would apply if the roof needed to be strengthened before anybody could walk on it?
