Log Home Planning Permission
Each transportable log cabin is quick and clean to install with minimal disruption, and in most cases, you won’t need building regulations approval when you install one of our log homes. UK planning permission is often simplified, you can read more about this in our handy guide to mobile home Planning Permission. Or contact us for some straightforward advice.
Planning Permission for a log home in your garden
Our cabins offer ideal extra accommodation for family members at home. All our log homes have floor plans that meet DDA guidelines for disabled access. This makes them ideal family or granny annexes, saving on care costs and providing reassuring closeness to the family. You won’t need Planning Permission in most cases, and we’ll apply for a Lawful Development Certificate on your behalf to confirm that.
Lawful Development Certificate
We do recommend that we obtain a Certificate of Lawful Development from your Council - we will even handle this process on your behalf. If Planning Permission is required, our experts will be happy to guide you through the process and deal with the application.
Zero rated for VAT
Another advantage of our transportable homes is that mobile homes that comply with BS EN3632-2005 or better and do not have planning restrictions are zero rated for VAT– a big saving on your initial costs. With prices starting at just £46,655 and finance available it's easy to see why a Norwegian Log home is a viable solution. Further information can be found below.
Planning Permission for rural land and farms
Harmonising effortlessly with the rural environment, our cabins offer quick, comfortable accommodation for you, your family or your staff on your land, farm, or smallholding. As they are fully mobile and transportable, the log homes are ideally suited to use as temporary homes.
For planning purposes, they comply fully with:
- Caravan Act
- NPPF paragraph 80
- Conditions in Certificates of Lawful Use
Our installation service covers the insulated weatherproof structure of the log home that we erect on your base. That includes roof, internal walls, windows, doors, floors and decoration, but not fitting out items such as mains services, kitchen fittings, bathroom, electrics, plumbing and floor coverings.
We provide complete working drawings for you to give to the contractor(s) you choose to fit out your mobile home.
Alternatively, for the ultimate in timesaving convenience, our turnkey log cabin packages also include fitting out. This service is available for sites within 50 miles/1 hour of Reading.
Prices for fully fitted-out log homes start at £83,205 and include kitchen, bathroom, electrics, plumbing and floor coverings.
Are log homes energy efficient?
Log homes are classed as energy-efficient as they are excellent at retaining heat and conserving energy. This is owing to the logs' natural insulation as interlocking logs provide insulation, and with the natural temperature control properties of the logs, your log home/cabin will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Whilst allowing you to keep your energy costs low, log homes are eco-friendly and cause minimal disruption to the environment.
The Norwegian Log team has been working to make dreams a reality for over 25 years.
