    Unless in a conservation area Garden Buildings are considered Permitted Development and do NOT require planning permission as long as: The building is to be placed less than 2.0m from the boundary of the property with a maximum overall height of no more than 2.5m from existing ground level.

    My old site you could only have 6x4 greenhouse or shed and it had to be in a set place on each allotment. I think this was done to stop causing shadows and for fairness. Never heard of planning permission for a shed.

    Wrong end of plot, apparently.

    It was a previous committee who allowed the scrapheap/shanty.

    We have to apply to the committee to erect any greenhouse, polytunnel or shed, and no-one is allowed to build out of old doors/windows etc, 'to avoid a ramshackle appearance.' I don't think they're fussy about siting the thing. Also only allowed generic dull green colour (or brown) on all wood.
    Shame, cos I was thinking Hello Kitty pink....

    You are unlikely to need planning permission from your Local Planning Authority but many allotment sites have specific rules about sheds and greenhouses.
