The issue of planning permission is as individual to your site, as is your use of the Pod itself. Therefore where your Pod is going to be sited and what you intend to use your Pod for will determine whether or not planning permission is necessary.
Generally, where your Pod is to be used ‘incidentally’ to your main dwellinghouse, eg, as a garden room or hobby/craft studio, it is possible that it will not require planning permission. If however your Pod is a self-contained unit, ie, you could live in it independently of your main dwellinghouse, then you may need planning permission. Also planning is dependent on the area in which you live and certain additional rules apply should you live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) or Conservation Area.
We would recommend that you contact your local planning authority to enquire with them whether planning permission is necessary for your site and requirements. We are happy to have a chat with you to draw upon our planning experience, to give you some advice about how to approach an enquiry with your local planning authority, especially depending on your proposed use of the Pod and where it is to be sited. We have of course given you the sizes of the Two Berth Pod and technical information within this web site but if you require any further information, we are more than happy to assist you in any way that we can.
The Pod is classified as a ‘mobile’ unit and as such is fully compliant with the Caravan Act.
