i have been asked by a customer to install a stove in a single storey flat roof extension, the flue will pass through the wall and up the outside, but how high must the flue be without looking ridiculous

Part J section 2 Building Regs covers flues amongst other requirements.
If the work is not carried out by a member of a competent person scheme eg HETAS  (who should know about flues, ventilation and all the rest of part J) then building control must be notified and inspect and approve the work.

Same diagram in section 3.20.17?
If there's no competent person scheme, then presumably a building warrant is needed and maybe planning permission too!
Hopefully There'll be the right kind of Celt along to help soon. Grin

Hard to even find a photograph of one.  The one below, found with Google,   looks neat enough but it is on a high roof and not very tall.

If the wind direction causes the chimney to be sheltered by the main house smoke could blow back down into the room so it will  need some kind of cowl, perhaps a H cowl.   That might allow it to be a bit shorter but  it is best to be prepared  to  increase the height if  problems show up  when it is used.

Yes distance from main building is covered in the diagrams in both sets of building regs. Also concerned with setting fire to the roof covering or damaging it.
And from the HETAS
" In Scotland there are different requirements and instead of self-certification, there is a building warrant scheme in operation, currently administered by the Scottish Building Standards Agency. However, HETAS also lists registered contractors in Scotland employing competent engineers who have met the HETAS requirements for Registration. Some Scottish companies are also registered as members of the Competent Persons Scheme (CPS) and although located in Scotland can operate in England and Wales as CPS Registered Companies."
