Chimney for wood burning stove

Chimney for wood burning stove

I am planning to install a wood burning stove into my timber framed house in Blackburn (Aberdeenshire).
The intension is to build a recess for the stove onto the exterior wall protruding outward and not into the room.
I would also like to have an exterior bricked chimney with the double insulated flue contained within.
The smoke would be contained within the flue and the brick gives the effect of a traditional chimney.

Can you please advise me as to the requirements for planning / building warrant required?
Would I require architectural drawings for this?

Thanks and regards,
Calum

    The creation of an external brick Chimney Stack would require both Planning & Building Warrant Approval and thus will require architectural drawings (and possibly certification by a Structural Engineer as well).

    However, if you just opted for an external flue (or internal) fixed to the external wall of the house and this flue did not project more than 1metre above the existing house ridge line, providing your property is not a Listed Building or within a Conservation Area, Planning Permission would not be required.

    The Building Warrant would still be required and this would still require architectural drawings to be prepared.
