Hi to all iam looking to get a simple question answered,i think simple,how big of a garage can i build in my back garden without planning permission.I live in ballybrack in the dun laoghaire area of dublin in a semi detatched house.The garden is 8.5 meters squarded in size of free space .Thank you
A garage is covered in
Thats great info mate thank you can i ask were you got that.
S.I No. 600 of 2001.
Thank you your a gent ive gotten refused planning permission twice and refused one appeal with an bord pleanala, all for a garage 6 meters squared by 10foot.They obviously have nothing to be doing these days but stopping us decent people from pumping money back into the economy.
36 square metres floor area x 3m high garage doesn't seem excessive, but you'll have to come down in size for it to be exempted development.
If i build 5 square meters by 10 foot would i be ok,thanks for you help iam just frustrated at this stage its not cheap
What were the reasons cited for the previous refusals?
Sorry i mean that,the reasons were the shape of it cause it didnt match the surrounding builings but that would be hard i live in a 3 story,also i would set an example for others but thats rubbish cause 27 out of 30 houses have extensions and 4 are bigger than what i wanted.Also no one objected
tapout, firstly... keep your measurements in metric so people dont get confused.
you can build 25 sq m (internal floor area) without permission
so thats 5m x 5m, or whatever dimensions which equates to 25 sq m.
most importantly... the external finishes MUST be similar or the same as the dwelling it serves.... a flat roof is allowed up to a max of 3 m high.
If its a pitched roof, then theres a max 4 m restriction, and the roof finish must be "similar" to the roof of the house. there are situations where it has been accepted that a profiled sheeting finish has been accepted as long as the profile matches the roof finish.
If the house is brick, the walls of the shed must look like brick, if rendered, then they must look rendered.
Thanks sydthebeat ,so i actually get 25 sq m inside the garage,as opposed to been the total overall size.
yes, its the total internal floor area.
