The first thing you need to do is select a suitably flat site within your property, preferably with easy access to a road or other public access if you plan to purchase your shed in kit form and have it delivered.

The next step in the process is to contact your local authority regarding planning consent. You will almost certainly need to obtain planning permission or face having to dismantle your shed at a later date should it not be possible to obtain retrospective planning consent. Speak to your council's department with responsibility for building control for advice in this matter.

You will be required to pay a fee, fill in an application form and inform the owners of adjoining property of your intentions.

Assuming planning permission is granted, the ground will have to then be prepared by levelling and the laying of suitable concrete foundations on which to base your shed.
