We have just bought terraced house with its own driveway. We would like to build garage on our driveway or shed to keep some stuff? Can we built anything on our driveway?

    Hello Radka,

    You can find the best advice for your particular area by contacting your local planning department. They should be able to clearly explain what you can and cannot do in terms of building.

    In my experience you will struggle to get agreement to allow permanent structures to be built on your driveway. Garages etc are not usually allowed to be built forward of the principal building line (the line that most of the building fronts in the street are built to) This isn’t set in stone however and each case is different.

    A shed, being a non permanent structure is unlikely to be opposed. Again, the local council will be able to give you a clearer picture of what you are able to do.

    Good luck

    To build a Garage on a driveway, you need to contact the structural design Engineers like the http://www.danteengineering.com . As I got my house designed by them, I highly recommend these.
