Rules for garden buildings
Garden buildings in Somerset, including sheds and summerhouses, rarely need planning permission, especially if they're under 30m² and more than 2m from the nearest boundary. The exceptions are buildings which can be described as 'habitable', and gardens by listed buildings or in conservation areas.
Put your garden building in the best spot you can find: consider what view you'll have from it when you're sitting inside, and how much natural light it will get. You may also need to get an extra electricity connection installed. If you need any extra advice, just ask the knowledgeable staff at the garden centre who will be pleased to help talk you through the options.
