    Looking to install a 39sq mt free standing temporary balcony structure at side of detached bungalow house with partially covered roof and internal stair access. Manufactured in steel, composite decking and glass balustrade off site for installation. No fixing or tie in to existing building and does not overlook any neighbour as end house. Structure does not protrude beyond front of house and roof is lower than existing roof line. Do we need planning or is it exempt?

    If any part of the deck/surface is 1.0 metre above the existing general ground level, then planning permission is required.

    A roof and stairs.....

    I think the whole thing requires planning.
    Structure to the rear max height 2m or shed/store limits may apply.

    definitely requires planning

    if you try to argue "extension" limits (see 39 sqm) the it has to be all at the back AND the max floor area above ground level is 20 sq m
    if you try to argue "shed" limits then thats 25 sq m max and finishes have to match dwelling
