Planning for a Car Port
Because car ports are considered to be 'temporary structures', they very often do not need planning approval. It's the same for some 'kit' or ready-made garages. Neverheless there are a number of other regulations you will need to observe. For instance if the building will be closer than the front of the house to the road.
You must also observe building regulations, where these apply. For instance making sure that your building is a minimum of 1 meter away from the boundary '.
While generally building regulations may not be applicable for detached single storey buildings that are over a metric from the boundary, if they have at least 2 sides open on and a floor area of less than 30 square meters, you may not need building regulations approval for a car port.
So, easy to design, plan and build, these cost effective professional timber structures add value to your property at first glance.
It is well known that Britain's homes are some of the smallest in Europe. Most have a severe lack of essential storage space. As a result many people now use their garage as a 'lock-up' store. Yet more have converted them to a home office, extra bedroom, 'granny flat', or garden exercise or recreation room.
Rain & Snow
With more and more cars being left parked in the drive, loading or unloading the kids, shopping, sports and short holiday break goods are increasingly affected by Britain's worsening weather. Rain … and more rain, seems to be the long term weather forecast for our summers, with occasional feet of snow in the winter.
So, cars and people need the convenient protection that garages used to provide, but which UK homes now lack.
