How close to a road can you build a garage?
How close to a road can you build a garage.
we are wishing to apply for planning permision to build a garage attached to the side of our house, and want to build right up to the boundry of our land.
there is access to the back of the house through a side gate as our house is on the side of a cul de sac, but wondering if there is any regulations as to how far away a house has to be from a road.thanks
www. planning portal.gov.uk click on the interactive guide and it should answer your question.

500mm from the side of the road unless its on a bend and it may be a different measurement because you have to allow for vision splay (google your question to an answer it may be able to say)

you can also go to council in person, I did they are very helpful and when you show plans they will be able to answer.
at the end this is them who approve plans or not
