do dwelle.ings require planning permission?

If you intend to use any building as a permanent home you will need planning permission. This includes our mobile dwelle.ing.

If you propose to use our dwelle.ing for other purposes, it may be that they could fall under “permitted development” that means they will not require a Full Planning Application. The Planning Portal have a very useful guide, and a mini-guide specifically for outbuildings.

We have considerable experience of gaining planning permission for new homes and can take the application for a dwelle.ing smoothly and successfully through the process. The dwelle.ing’s design, size and sustainability credentials will appeal to the planners and it should find favour over and above the standard house.

For a relatively low cost and an application that shouldn’t take any longer than a couple of months, the volume of space you will enjoy over many years will make the initial process justifiable and well worth it.

For self-builders new to the process, this Homebuilding & Renovating website page provides some very useful information.
