We are in a detached house with detached garage up against the boundary line/fence of our neighbours land. DH would like to make the back 1/3 of the garage into a small studio ( he's an artist) Somewhere to store his equipment and to work in peace! He would want to install a small sink and the door into the room would be facing our house ( not visible from neighbours side)
I've checked planning regs and it all seems ok apart from the bit that says an outbuilding cannot be within 1m of the boundary line ( the garage is right up against out fence) I guess it counts as an outbuilding? Within the garage?!
I wouldn't be worried if it weren't for our horrible nosey neighbours. If they realise what we are doing or have done they will be onto the council in a shot. Would we have anything to worry about?
