I thought I already created a thread, but cant find it, perhaps it was a post in another.

The size of the proposed one, weather it will be bricks or rendered, I'm not sure yet.

Why is the trans-am still on the driveway in the 2nd picture? It should be behind the garage door!!
It may be a bit tight in there with the 3rd gen Camaro too! lol. I take it that's still in there Dan?

The plans look good, should be a good sized garage. And I like the artist's impression :thumb:

Yeah 3rd Gen still int here The garage will be 6.5m wide. Enough for two cars, although to open car door wide then only room for one car.

Cool. That should be awesome and will give plenty of space to work on a car in there and probably for a small bench and your tools too.

Interesting. I was thinking corrugated steel sheets with 100mm thick insulation. The aim was to keep it low profile following the profile of other garages and my old one in hope they will say its okay.
I will whip another drawing with a shallow pitched roof with tiles and submit both and see what becomes of them.

Garage plans submitted to local council. This is to get advice on if I need to put in planning permission, and to see if I can get acceptance without planning. As its less that 50% of the land, its a brick building thats not designed to be lived in.
I hopefully get a reply that I need to pay a fee for the approval and they say, go ahead with the building. :)

The garden plan with a 6.8 x 7m garage.

One of the criteria with an additional building that is has to be less than 50% of your land. Which it certainly is.

Have you considered moving the boundary so that the area of front garden near the shed becomes part of the back garden?
Yes this has been considered, its currently a brick wall, I will probably take that down, and put up a wooden fence to be inline with the front of the house, making the back garden bigger. The space to the side of the house is kinda wasted, just got a flower border there. It could be useful as a back garden. I wont move the shed, but may move the little mini shed that I'm going to be making shortly.

I should hear back this week on weather I can build the garage. I sent them photos, and an artistic impression of a 7 x 6.8m garage. Fingers crossed.

Had a reply back from the council. They have basically said planning permission will not be required providing I follow the guildlines, so not over 2.5meters, not more than 50% of the land etc... They have seen the plans and have not said I cant do it.

Next stage then.... getting a quote for building work.
