When is planning permission required to construct a garden wall?
Planning permission is required to construct a garden wall in the following situations:
if the proposed wall is to be constructed next to a highway used by vehicles (including the footpath of any such highway) and it is to be over 1 metre in height; or
if the proposed wall is to be constructed elsewhere (for example, at the rear or at the side of a garden) and the proposed wall is to be over 2 metres in height; or
if the right to construct a wall has been overridden by an earlier planning condition; or
- if the right to construct a wall has been overridden by an “article 4 direction”.
if there is a listed building on the land or if the proposed wall will fall within the curtilage of a listed building; or
if the proposed wall will form a boundary with a neighbouring listing building or its curtilage.
