Do I need planning permission to make changes to my garden? If you're looking to make changes to your garden, you may be wondering if you need planning permission. The good news is that most garden projects won't require planning permission. However, there are some cases where you will need to get permission before you can begin work.
For example, if you live in a conservation area, you may need permission to remove or prune trees. If you're considering building a new structure, such as a shed or a greenhouse, you may need to get planning permission if the structure exceeds a certain height or covers more than half of the garden. It's always best to check with your local planning authority to see if you need permission before starting any work.
