GARAGES

As with any other extension, garages should be sympathetically related to the main dwelling, whether they are adjoined or freestanding. Pitched or lean to roofs are preferable to flat or jack roofs as they are more likely to complement the existing house and locality. In normal circumstances, garages should be in line with or behind the front of the house, unless associated with a porch extension and a sufficient driveway is available.
