Sometimes, log cabins need to have planning permission and there is a process to go through to secure this approval. Firstly, it is important to work with local planning officers to ascertain whether permission is needed in the first place and to complete a smooth and seamless process if it does.
When a garden cabin room or any bespoke log cabins are built for the purpose of becoming a permanent residence or holiday lets, planning permission will generally be needed. To start the process, it is vital that several documents are produced, such as evidence of land ownership where the cabin will be built and fully scaled drawings and plans of the proposed structure. A planning application fee will also be required.
Once the paperwork has been completed and the fee paid, your planning application will be examined and considered by your local planning office. This can often take up to twelve weeks, so it is important to remember this possible time frame when booking trades people and deliveries.
It is worth remembering that the planning team may get back to you asking for clarification or even some modifications to the design. Planners will generally consider the impact of log cabins on their local environment and the availability of services like water supplies. Once the planners are satisfied with the proposals to build your log cabins, they will issue a certificate of approval.
