A building permit must be obtained before proceeding with such a project, and established standards and guidelines must be respected.

Dimensions of a garage or carport:

  • Maximum height: 4.5 metres
  • Minimum length: 6 metres
  • Minimum width: 3.3 metres
  • Maximum surface area : 56 square metres

Dimensions of a garden shed:
