Can I have a decorative stone wall?

Could I have a small stone well built in my garden that is more for show than anything? Ideally, it would not need to be even too deep, but one that provides at least the illusion of depth. One way or another, is planning permission or/and building regulations approval needed for this?

Sorry about the wait for this answer.
Most decorative walls in your garden do not need planning permission if they are not too tall or close to your boundary. There can sometimes be local restrictions but it would seem unlikely to affect your well.
Keep your walling part of your well's design below two meters high and check the planning portal and you should be OK.
Hope this helps

"Yes quite easily can be done I don't think you would need planning permission but you should always check for underground services before breaking ground"
