Do I need planning permission for my summer house or log cabin?

Updated: Feb 11

Our log cabins are considered as permitted development so long as their use is ancillary to the main house and they do not take up more than 50% of your garden. Exceptions to this and cases when you might need planning permission would include:

  • When you wish to put a summer house or log cabin in your front garden.

  • When the eaves height is over 2.5m on your building or the overall height is over 4m on an apex roof or over 3m on any other roof.

  • When the building is within 2 metres of your boundary and its overall height is over 2.5m.

  • When you are situated in a National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or Conservation Area.

  • If in any doubt we would always recommend that you consult your local planning authority.
