Do I Need Planning Permission For My Garden Building or Log Cabin?

1410STUDIO 2

One of the most common questions we at The Log Cabin Company (North) Ltd get asked is, “Do I need planning permission for my garden building?” It’s a valid concern, and we’re here to shed some light on the matter.

The Short Answer:
In most cases, due to the unique design of our products, our garden buildings can be seamlessly installed without the need for planning permission. That’s right – you can have that beautiful log cabin or garden room you’ve always dreamt of, without the bureaucratic hassle!

However, There Are Some Exceptions:
While our buildings are designed to make your life easier, there are certain situations where you might need to have a chat with your local authority. Here’s when you should consider seeking planning permission:

Height Concerns: If the garden building exceeds 2.5m in height. But here’s the good news – none of The Log Cabin Company (North) Ltd buildings exceed this height. So, you’re in the clear on this one!

Location, Location, Location: Planning to place an outbuilding in front of the main elevation of your property? If it’s as the property was originally built or as it stood on 1st July 1948, you’ll need to seek planning permission.

Historical or Graded Buildings: Living in a listed or graded building? It’s always best to check with your local authority before making any additions.

Designated Areas: If your home is in areas of outstanding natural beauty, national parks, world heritage sites, or conservation areas, you’ll need to tread carefully. These areas have specific rules to preserve their unique character.

Garden Space: If there’s a chance that over 50% of your garden would be occupied by outbuildings, it’s time to consult with the experts.

In Conclusion:
While our garden buildings are designed to simplify the installation process, it’s always best to be informed. If you’re ever in doubt, a quick conversation with your local authority can provide clarity. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Remember, The Log Cabin Company (North) Ltd is always here to assist and guide you through the process. Dream big, and let’s build that perfect garden retreat together!
