Planning consent for tennis courts…


Under normal circumstances, the construction of a tennis court does not require planning permission in the gardens behind a private house.


The planning rules for tennis courts come under and are specifically  mentioned in  the general rules for outbuildings which state that an enclosure below a height of three metres does not require planning consent.


There are just six reasons why you would need [planning permission for a tennis court.

1 The house is listed.

2 Permitted development rights have been removed.

3 The house is in an area of outstanding natural beauty or national park.

4 Significant civil engineering works are required.

5 It would be more than 50% of the garden,

6  It is not in the garden.

EnTC tennis court construction


You’ll be aware of our commitment to quality, from the moment we visit to discuss your needs and to survey your proposed site. We’ll take care of details, such as making sure that the court will fit the area you have in mind, that it is correctly orientated relative to the sun and that it is located on stable ground. We’ll ensure that tree roots wont be a problem, and that surface chosen will perform well in the location..


Following these initial decisions, we will recommend the most appropriate surface and submit a specification and estimate for a total design and build contract. There will be no short cuts in material specification, no casual labour and nothing but the very highest standards.


What you will get are UK-sourced materials that are checked and approved by us before they are used. We deploy our own construction teams, each of which is led by a foreman who is a highly experienced specialist in tennis court construction. To reinforce this dedication to quality assurance, our construction manager will make site visits to carry out detailed quality inspection.
