I presumed you needed planning for any permenant structure and there are also planning issues for brick walls as they are permenant structures

 

your thoughts

I do not think we need full planning requirements for all decking. There are rules in place for decks of certain heights etc. and these are enough for the time being.

If there were more rules and planning application for all decking, then this would need to be introduced across the rest of landscaping projects. Why have one rule for decking and not for a patio for instance?
