Strawbale ‘pod’

Strawbale ‘pod’

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert We have a 2.5 acre croft, a generous proportion of this is de-crofted.
We would like to build a ¾ scale ‘crofters cottage’ out of strawbale and run it as a glamping ‘pod’. It would be a very basic construction and offer the same facilities as many of the timber ‘wig-wams’ and ‘pods’ that are popular these days.
Do I need planning permission for this? If it is needed, am I likely to have planning permission granted?
Thanks in advance for your expert opinion.

    Hi Sam.

    You will need to apply for planning permission as you will be changing the use of the land.

    Its hard to say if you will be granted permission or not without knowing the specific area and project details however you should take into consideration, access to the site, the area located, impact on surrounding area etc…

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
