Do decking areas need planning permission?

Timber decks differ from conventional patios and terraces most significantly in their elevation and general height of construction.
For all but the simplest low-level garden decks, property owners should satisfy themselves that planning regulations do not apply to their proposed structure. Generally any structure above door threshold level may require you to contact the Local Authority, we strongly recommend that you talk to your neighbours about your plans as neighbours are the most usual reason for objections and enforcement notices being issued.
