Outbuildings
This section provides you with general information to help you comply with the Building Regulations when constructing a new outbuilding within the boundaries of an existing property, such as:
  • garage or carport
  • summerhouse or shed
  • greenhouse
Building a new garage attached to an existing home would normally need building regulations approval.
Building a new attached carport (open on at least two sides) would not normally require building regulations approval if it is less than 30 square metres in floor area.
Building a detached garage of less than 30 square metres floor area would not normally need building regulations approval if:
  • the floor area of the detached garage is less than 15 square metres.
  • the floor area of the garage is between 15 square metres and 30  square metres, provided the garage is at least one metre from any boundary, or it is constructed from substantially non-combustible materials.
 
If you want to convert an integral or attached garage into habitable use, building regulations will normally apply, view specific information for garage conversions.
In many cases, these structures will be exempt from requiring approval under the Building Regulations if they meet certain exemption criteria.
If the Regulations do apply to the building then it must be built to reasonable standards.
The following pages give an indication of some of the elements normally required to satisfy the requirements of the Regulations when building an outbuilding:
  • Foundations
  • Walls below ground
  • Flooring 
 
The following common work sections give an indication of several other elements normally required to satisfy the requirements of the Regulations when building an outbuilding:
  • Drainage
  • External walls
  • Electrics
  • Roof
