For the purposes of the Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, external space:
'...includes not only the approach to the home (such as the driveway), but also access to other functional spaces around or outside the home (for example access to the waste storage, parking, and external drying space).'
In a wider sense, external space typically refers to the environment that exists outside buildings or other enclosures. This is as opposed to the internal environment, which comprises the environment inside buildings and other enclosures.
