Normally you would need a building permit.

Whether planning permission is needed for a prefab lean-to garage depends on several factors, including local regulations and the specific characteristics of your project. In general, you should consider the following points:

1. Size and Height: Many local authorities have limits on the size and height of structures that can be built without planning permission. If your lean-to garage exceeds these limits, you will likely need permission.
2. Proximity to Boundaries: If the garage is within a certain distance from your property boundary, you may need planning permission.
3. Purpose: If the garage is being used for purposes other than domestic storage, such as running a business, you may need planning permission.
4. Previous Extensions: If your property has already been extended, it may affect whether you can add further extensions without planning permission.
5. Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas: If your property is a listed building or within a conservation area, stricter rules typically apply, and planning permission is more likely to be required.
6. Local Regulations: Regulations can vary significantly by location, so it’s essential to check with your local planning authority.

To ensure compliance, it’s recommended to contact your local planning authority or consult a professional surveyor or architect familiar with local regulations. They can provide specific guidance based on your situation.

Depending on where in the garden you are putting it and don’t believe you need planning as it’s a prefab and not fixed onto a pad or the ground

Garages are usually considered as outbuildings and don't need planning permission. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule. If you want to avoid needing planning permission, ensure your garage: Has a floor space of below 15m2 if freestanding or 30m2 if attached to your home.
