Planning Permission For Garden Buildings & Log Cabins

Most garden buildings, including log cabins, are classified as Permitted Development and usually should not require Planning Permission.

As a general rule, buildings under 30m Square do not require planning permission as long as the following guidelines are followed:

* Under 20 square metres, the building must be sited at least 5m away from the main property and not between the property and the main highway.

* The size of the building must not exceed 1/2 of the size of the land surrounding the property.

* The building must not exceed a height of 4m.


* When the building is between 20-30m square there must be a space of at least 1m betweeen the building and the boundary.

Please note: Local planning permissions can vary and if you are unsure you should check with your local planning office before purchasing.
Other considerations must be taken into acount such as conservation areas.
