I've just moved house and all my tools etc are currently in the loft doing no one any good. So, I want to build a shed to work in.

I've seen a metal garden shed from Asgard, which is perfect as its roughly 5 by 3 so would fit in my garden nicely..the only thing I'm worried about is if theres any planning permissions I'd need as it says i'd have to put a concrete base down..

Do you think something like that would be an issue?

I have one of the Asgard sheds (I got the biggest one they do online - I Think it was called the Gladiator) 7ft wide and 7ft high. No permission was needed (I checked), I just informed the neighbours out of good manners. Enjoy your shed!!!

Hi John. I can confirm Scotts story, I also bought an Asgard from shed after double checking with the council. You do not need planning permission to put one up. Just check with the neighbours that it deos not block a view or light etc. out of manners really.

Hi Im interested in building my own small sustainable/ low impact house and was wondering how small a structure needs to be to not require planning permission. Also if I were to build 2 or more unconnected structures ie one for living/kitchen space and one for sleeping would this be classed as one home or two separate small structures?

Do I need planning permission to install 50sq meter hard surface and a 15 sq meter bike shed within the grounds of our business
