Sheds and greenhouses
You'll find some useful information for when you are making the decision that your property would be suitable for a shed or greenhouse.
You'll need to ask for our permission to install a shed or a greenhouse in a communal garden.
Further guidance on installing a shed or greenhouse:
It must contain no sleeping accommodation and have no electricity supply
- The shed must be one metre from a boundary
- It should be no more than three metres high for a flat roof, or four metres with a ridged roof.
- You'll be responsible for all maintenance and repairs to any structure you install with or without our permission
- There must be a suitable area and size of land for the shed or greenhouse to be installed
- When considering the size and location, you must make sure the shed or greenhouse will not block light to neighbouring properties.
- A shed or greenhouse must generally be sited in the garden at the back of the property; however, consideration will be given to sheds or greenhouses to be installed in a side garden, where there is no suitable area in the back garden.
- The shed or greenhouse should be at least 3.5 metres away from the property and built on a level surface of hard-core or paving slabs.
- You will be responsible for all maintenance and repairs to any structure you install with or without permission.
