Getting planning permission for timber buildings

Many of our customers think that timber buildings do not need planning permission. This is often not the case, unfortunately.A timber structure is not a temporary building and may need planning permission. A lot will depend on the location and the planning rules that apply to that location.You can get a good idea by looking at the planning website www.planning portal / outbuildings

We provide the basic details for planning permission for domestic properties on our website   In my last post I said that getting planning permission could be a lengthy process. Councils have an obligation to give you a response within 8 weeks of your application being validated. Sometimes you will hear within 6 weeks, but it pays to be prepared before you apply to avoid delays. Validation can take quite a time if your application does not meet the required standard.

It makes no difference whether you are putting up a wooden garage or  a  garden shed as to whether or not you need planning permission or not. Ask us for help. We regularly make planning applications on behalf of our customers. This may be for anything from a home office to commercial buildings. So whatever building you are thinking about call us now to discuss the planning permission implications.
