I would like to build an outbuilding in my garden to use as a photographic studio.
My garden is approx 8m wide and 90m long. In order to get the width I want I will be within the 2m boundary rule under permitted development - i.e. the height of the building can only be 2.5m (may have got the exact numbers wrong, but that's the gist).
Anyway, I would like to have a working height of 4m for the type of photography I do - so can I dig down say 2m so that the outbuilding is 2m above ground and 2m below ground, thus does not break the permitted development height rule from ground level?
