Annexes
.

Life changing spaces for care and independence.

Whether you’re looking for a garden annex?as living space for an elderly relative or extra rooms for a growing family, we can help you with a practical, affordable and stylish space.?

We handle all aspects of the planning process for you, including dealings with the local council. Annexes can be built under ‘permitted development’, but typically require permission where sleeping accommodation is provided, which we can source for you.

We provide a single point of contact for all groundwork (for water and waste connections), foundations, structure and electrics too.

For more information on our annex installations, please head to the website of our sister brand, Anexo. The planning permission, layouts and features vary slightly between garden rooms and annexes, so we created Anexo to keep these two separate, but both companies share the same great team and experience.

FAQ’s about our garden annexes

Do I need planning permission for an annexe?

Yes. If you want to include permanent sleeping accommodation you will need to apply for planning permission. We can make the application on your behalf and submit all required drawings and plans.

Can the annexe be attached to my house?

Yes – we can attach to the main house or build as a standalone dwelling.

Do I need a macerating toilet?

No – we can connect to the main drains and install a pump station if required (if your new annexe is lower than your drains).

Can I rent out my annex?

Local authorities prefer annex use to be within the family, where the annex is considered ancillary to the main house. If you wish to rent it out externally you will need explicit permission.

Do I need to pay council tax for my annex?

All annexes typically require that they are used by a family member. Most are built with elderly care in mind and therefore exempt from Council Tax. If the annex owner is not classed as a dependent relative (and this might be because of disability too) then Council Tax is payable at 50%.
