    The law in England is different from other parts of the UK. Around your house there are no restrictions on the area of land which you can cover with hard surfaces at, or near, ground level. The only real restriction is on front gardens - or if your house is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. 

    You do not need Building Regulations approval despite what some people will tell you.

    Generally no, unless it's in a conservation area.  Just ring your local Council.

  • No. Planning permission generally only applies to buildings. If you are in a conservation area and the garden can be seen from the street, different rules apply.
