    Planning permission for a log cabin


    Do I need planning permission to have a log cabin constructed? And if so, what is involved in the process? Does permitted development depend on factors such as the scale and type of log cabin? Thanks for your time.

    "Not as far as I know, but you can submit an online proposal to the local authority and ask"

    "It depends on the size of the cabin if it's in the back of the garden like a shed you don't need permission but have to ring building regulations about what you are doing."

    "Depending on size and height and if there will be drainage needed say a w/c you will have to have a building inspector IE dss district surveyor.
    Best bet ring council to the information."
