Planning permission requirements
A consultation with your local planning office is recommended. These structures can fall within the 40m² category.
In most cases planning permission will not be required because the Tiny Homes structures are classed in the category of class 3 exempted development.
It is important to note that in some situations a Tiny Homes Cabin can be exempted as a building, but the use may require planning permission. If you are interested in using a Tiny Home for one of the following purposes, you will most likely require planning permission:
- as a public building (crèche, classroom, etc)
- a commercial office with staff
- as a habitable dwelling (especially if you intend to obtain rental income)
