Decking

Installing decking, or other raised platforms in your garden is permitted providing:

  • It is no more than 30cm above the ground
  • Together with other extensions, sheds etc, they cover no more than 50 per cent of the garden area. If you intend to cover more than 50 per cent of the total garden area with decking, you will require planning permission from the local authority
  • Due to the increased fire risk, the installation must not be against your home
  • The decking installed must not impact access to others customers and properties. If you are unsure, please contact Beyond Housing before installation as you may be asked to remove the decking at your own cost
  • Decking must not cover drains or affect drainage in neighbouring properties
  • Where walls or fencing are to be removed to install decking, an alteration request form must be completed.
