Planning Constraints – We Can Help….

There is the possibility that you have a small piece of land on your property that you want to make the most of, but are unsure of the planning constraints that apply. Many people believe that, rather than creating a beautiful and practical oak structure, they will have to resort to an unsightly tin box. However, this is something English Oak Buildings can certainly help with.

Because we create bespoke frames then we can adhere to certain guidelines meaning that the annoyance of obtaining planning permission is not always necessary. This was the case with our project for Will Trickett.


Will, who has worked with Kevin McCloud on Hand Made Home, had planning permission on his site – 1680 sq ft footprint – for a double caravan. However, it had to be built┬áso it could be removed in two pieces. His challenge to us was to see if we could design and build one from oak. As such, the trusses are bolted together in the middle so the building can be split in two.

So if you do have a piece of woodland that you think suffers from planning restraints then get in contact. There might be scope to build a holiday cabin that could have a number of bedrooms. The restrictions of simply having a soulless mobile home could be gone for good.
