How close to the property line can I build an attached garage?
Keeping this in consideration, how close to the property line can I build a driveway?
Pretty much a standard, though, is that it must be eight feet back from the property line for any permanent structure with a roof. A driveway can be right at the property line, but not a garage, and in most cases not even a permanently-built carport, with just a roof.
- 1.5m for a wall up to 4.5m high.
- 2m for a wall up to 7.5m high.
- 2m plus 0.5m for every 3m (or part of 3m) over 7.5m height for a wall over 7.5m high.
- less than 1.5m where:
Similarly, you may ask, how far does a garage need to be from the street?
ALONG ANY STREET, your house generally should be at least 30 FEET but no more than 60 FEET from the back of the curb. If your GARAGE faces the street, it should be 30 FEET from the back of the curb.
Butting your shed right against a garden fence doesn't allow the shed room to 'breathe' and is an invitation for damp to set in. Don't use a shed side as a replacement fence side. Your current neighbour may have no problem with it, a future neighbour may well do.
