Planning rules governing oak barns relate to the buildings size and position. In some cases structures can be erected in your garden or surrounding land without the need to apply for planning as they have been designed to fit within the parameters required for permitted development. There are however other determining factors such as whether or not your site is considered to be a sensitive location, so we always recommend that your intentions are checked with your Local Authority before you proceed.
You may already have planning permission for an oak barn with a specific design, or you may have made no investigation regarding Planning and Building Regulation matters. Either way, as part of our initial consultation we will establish your requirements then advise on the likely requirements for your project.
We offer a full design service where we prepare planning drawings including location and block plans specific to your site.

However we are happy to work alongside your local architect if you prefer and will move swiftly to assist them in achieving your permission.
