I wondered if anyone had had any dealings with planning folk due to wanting to put a greehouse 'within two metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse' as this limits it to being 2.5m tall at its highest point. Do people basically just tend to ignore the fact that greenhouses tend to be slightly taller than permitted development allows?
We would like to build a brick outbuilding with a wooden greenhouse on a dwarf wall running off one side (on the greenhouse's gable end) as a wooden only structure might find itself with damp feet in severe weather as that part of the garden can end up with a couple of inches of water if the rain is heavy and prolonged. Our desire is for a hipped roof to blend with the greenhouse meaning an overall height of only about 2.75m.
Hope this makes any sense at all, it did in my head before I started to type...
