Hello Alan,
A shed is a tempory building and while a licence is needed it will not cost you anywhere near that, that you mention, you can get free advice from your local town hall and the permissions to erect your shed. This is of course on the condition that you do not run electric or water to the shed, as this will be anothjer story. Good Luck.

You can get all the advice you need if you visit our Spanish Fourm, so please take a look in there.

Hi Alan,

As stated above, you can get the electric to your shead, but the way you go aboout getting permission for it is a little different from the normal. It goes something like this, You go to your town hall and ask for a building permit, "Part Technical" (there are three types of building permission forms. 1 Non Technical, 2 Part technical, 3. full technical. The first is something like a BBQ with no technical ie no water or Electric to the structure, second is the BBQ with Water & Electric, third is a compleate re-build of a house) I hope that you understand that?

You will need to fill this form out and put a plan of the Shed and the connection of the Electric onto it, Keep all your recipts for any item you buy for the erection of the shed and supply of the electric, and add these to the form. You will be charged a percentage of the cost of materails as the cost of the build, this could be as much as 3 & a Half percent of the total cost of the build.

You will then be legal for the shed, good luck with the build.

David SR

My experience of applying for (and getting) licenses and those of other brits I know personally, who apply to different town halls, makes me think that there is a huge variation in both the interpretation and enforecement of the regulations.
I would suggest you either employ someone to go to the town hall with you (draw some diagrams, take a spanish shed catalog with you and maybe an artists impression) or ask around at the local estate agents. The agents will have an idea of how lenient or strict your particular T.H is, if you explain to them what you want to do.

Make sure everyone understands that this will be a small structure and there is no possibility of anyone living in it.

If the worst comes to the worst, accept a permit for a standalone shed (no 'leccy) and once it's up, run an extension cable out from the main house.

Agree with Countryboy. you don't need any type of license while making your garden. If you are making a permanent building for life time then you will be require some types of license related to your building or country (city) policies. Last time in Auckland toughout store provides all types of garden sheds i also ordered this size garden shed:2.37M x 1.32M x 1.81M in online store . so i think there will be no issue for you and anyother while making garden shed on their backyard garden.
