Planning for your Pod

For Personal Home Use

When it comes to the issue of planning permission for installing a camping pod you can assure you are doing the right thing by both doing your research and speaking with the relevant planning officials. The below information is solely for guidance and it’s not legal advice. If you’re at all unsure as to whether you need planning permission for siting a camping pod it is strongly urged that you get in touch with your local planning authority.

If you're planning to buy a camping pod to use as an extra addition to your home, such as garden office or studio then planning permission isn’t usually required. This is because the pod falls under the permitted development rights for the house and is incidental to the main property. Incidental has been defined to mean “subordinate to the enjoyment of a house for residential purposes”. Permitted development offers home-owners a whole variety of potential ways to make the best use of their extra space.

This does not provide a green light on any sort of pod to be installed, as there are conditions which govern the placement of the pod in relation to the house.


Based at Laing's of Harker, our Shepherd Huts & Camping Pods are built by a close knit family team, excited to be involved in a business which is forging strong client relationships with holiday parks, farms and developers of all sizes. Each pod and hut is built by our in house team.
