Planning Advice Service 

 
We want to make the process of buying a static caravan or lodge as easy as possible for our customers. With this in mind we work in conjunction with a local planning consultant to get you the very best advice and help with obtaining planning permission on your own private land (this service does incur a small fee, based on the amount of work to be carried out).  
Whilst there are situations where planning permission is not needed, there are many that do. We've covered the most common scenarios below, however we do  
advise that all our customers carry out checks before any siting takes place.  
If you would like to use our planning advice service to check if you can site one of our caravans/lodges on your private land, then please complete the contact form at the bottom of the page.  
Situations where planning permission may not be needed 
Self-builder? Good news you don't need planning permission! 
 
Planning permission is not required to site your caravan or lodge on land which forms part of, or adjoins, land on which building operations are being carried out if it is being occupied by the person doing the building work. This exemption allows self builders to live on the land whilst they build their own home. 
 
 
Other situations often require planning permission and you need to carry out your own checks in this regard. We do offer a planning advice service in conjunction with a local consultant for a small fee. Complete our form at the bottom of the page to get started. 
Do you want a caravan or lodge in your garden or on your drive as a residential annexe? 
You most likely won't need planning permission if you adhere to the following:- 
 
 
Your caravan or lodge must be sited on the land immediately surrounding the house such as a drive or garden. 
 
The caravan or lodge must be used by a family member or as guest accommodation and not rented as a private residence or business premises etc. 
 
The structure of the caravan or lodge must conform to the legal definition of a ‘caravan’. This applies to all our static caravans & lodges as they are built and transported on a chassis. 
 
A relationship must remain between the main house and the caravan or lodge, the people using the caravan or lodge must have use of the main house. 
 
If you meet these requirements then you most likely won't need planning permission, however we would advise you to get a certificate of lawfulness for peace of mind. To ask any questions or get help with planning permission for your garden or drive then please complete our form below.
