Building a granny annex in your garden

I want to know about what the planning regulations would be around building a granny annex in a garden which is sited in a conservation area (Catford, Culverley Estate). The structure would not be big (circa 25 x 20 max) and the garden is very big (120ft long). The gardens back onto other gardens and there are summer houses already on properties in and around the house. We were considering building a summer house (which wouldnt apparently need planning permission) and then applying for further planning permission on conversion into a granny annex. There is an existing summer house there already, allbeit a bit broken down. Thoughts please!

  • This will almost definitely require planning permission so I would advise speaking to Catford Council and they will arrange somebody to come and have a look.

  • Regardless of planning consent you wil most likely need Building Regulations consents which is entirely different to planning consent. You should talk to the council about this.
