When it comes to considering the addition of a pool house to your property, one of the foremost questions that often arises is, "Will I need planning permission?”. As seasoned industry experts, we’ve encountered this query countless times and are here to provide some clarity on the subject.
Grasping The Fundamentals Of Planning Permission
For those who harbour aspirations of a stand-alone pool house nestled in their garden, here's the good news: in many instances, you won't require planning permission. If the structure designated to house your pool is freestanding, adheres to the permitted development design criteria and your permitted development rights remain intact, you're likely to be in the clear. This offers a level of flexibility and simplicity in bringing your pool house vision to fruition.
Pool House Extensions And Their Permission
The scenario takes a different turn when you contemplate an extension to your home for your pool house. Almost universally, this situation demands planning permission. Extensions typically involve more substantial modifications to your existing property and can exert a more pronounced influence on the surrounding environment. Consequently, the planning process is more rigorous.
