Planning Permission, Yes Or No?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any builders out there could shed some light on a potential build I have in mind. I live in a 2 up, 2 down, end terrace, ex council house, onto the back of I would like to add a "Catio", basically a pergola with wire mesh to prevent escape from for our cats. The proposed measurements for the structure would be 30ft by 14ft x 10ft high. Would I need to apply for planning permission before building could go ahead?? And would the structure be classed as an outdoor building??? Many thanks in advance.

You shouldn't need permission but a call to the Council planning dept will confirm.

Pretty sure it would be classed as a temporary building therefore wouldn’t need planning. Similar to a conservatory or summer room, don’t think it can exceed the size of the biggest room in the house though
