13. Changes to This Site
13.1 We reserve the right to make changes to these terms and conditions at any time.
14. Planning Permission
This is in no way binding and is dependent on Local Authorities, but may be used as a guide Applications for approval normally involve a fee, normally related in some way to the value of the development.
Every application for Planning Permission or Building Regulations is, to an extent, unique. While the following are general rules, it is impossible to define all the regulations applying to a specific development – Local Authorities have some thick books of rules rather than just these few pages. It is always good advice to consult your local planning/building control officers early to avoid any costly abortive work. If work is carried out without the necessary approvals, the local authority can issue an enforcement notice requiring (at best) retrospective approval or (at worst) demolition of the work completed.
Normally Planning Permission or Building Regulation approval is not required provided that:
If at all in doubt contact your local authority for clarification. No charge will be made if no planning permission is required.
15. Anti-Rot Guarantee
19.1 Our garden buildings are pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee, it is necessary that you treat the garden building with a high quality, spirit-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to manufacturer’s instructions.
19.2 This guarantee covers fungal decay and insect attack. The guarantee does not cover movement, warping or splitting of the timber over time. This warranty is only valid in the UK.
19.3 Validity of Guarantee The guarantee is invalid if:
