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

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 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.
