Driveways Patio's Fences Etc.

Recommended Posts

My local club has leveled some waste ground at the side of the building (belonging to them), and built a low wall and concrete patio area. Total size aprox 40sq mtr. Should they have obtained planning permission first?

Without more detail I`ll have a stab at this.

If the property belongs to them. The wall is low then I doubt any planning permission is required. The only problem they may have is if the ground is in a flood risk area they may need to apply for permission to cover such a large area with concrete. Certain councils insist that all new driveways are designed to allow water to soak through.

I'll take a guess and say it depends on what it's used for. If it's for people to congregate there, then that possibly creates a noise nuisance or privacy issues to anyone living next door. Residential properties are allowed high walls at the rear, but only low ones at the front I believe? It's probably the same for commercial.

Why do you ask?

Two metres is the limit in these parts at least - a friend checked with the council after her neighbour put up a barbed wire-topped monstrosity on the border with her garden. It was just within the 2m limit; surprise, surprise.

Which I'm sure that Fiddler O'F├╝ckerty will be srcupulously sure they are when he turns up in his caravan to re-do your driveway...

Thanks guys! The club want to erect a smoking shelter eventually. Neighbors are not happy, and one has reported the club to the council. The council have stopped any further work, until planning consent has been granted.
