I appreciate that the ultimate answer to this question is check with your local authority. The reason I am asking ‘academically’ is I’ve read everything I can online on this subject and remain somewhat bemused and have have had our offer accepted for our new home (hooray!!) and so until we can conclude and get in there I am trying to work out what we can do with the new place. There are tons of ideas of maybe I could do this, that or the other but the top 3 for me are;
1. Can I build a summer kitchen (small BBQ tiled roof) hut on my rustic or urban land without the need for complex licences
2. Can I get a builder to build an internal stairway (only has an external steps)
3. Can I build a workshop, office or gym on my land (rustic or urban)
im prepped for “ask your local authority once you are there” but in case anyone has done any of these things and willing to share I’m curious about others experiences.
