Permitted Development Rights Extended To Allow For 60-Day Recreational Campsites.

What is now Permitted?

Land can now be used for up to 60 days rather than the previous 28 days. There is no need to apply for “prior approval” unless the site is within a Flood Zone 2 or 3, but there are conditions which require the provision of on-site toilets and waste disposal.
Helpfully, the new rights apply in national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and conservation areas i.e. areas which are usually afforded significant protections in planning policies and decisions.

What’s changed?

The new Class BC of Part 4 of the General Permitted Development Order comes into effect on 26th July 2023. This will allow landowners to use their land (subject to some restrictions) for the siting of tents and motorhomes for up to 60 days a year, and for up to 50 pitches, without having to first make a planning application

What is not Permitted?

As before, the new rights do not extend to sites which are on a site of scheduled ancient monument, in a safety hazard area, in a military explosives area, on a site of special scientific interest or, on a site of a listed building. The siting of any caravan is also not permitted.

What Can We Do For You?

The new rights almost double the number of days previously allowed to run a camp site without applying for planning permission. It is therefore a fantastic opportunity for landowners to operate tourist facilities across a longer season, without having to go through the planning process.

Consulting us will help you gain a clear view as to whether or not planning permission is required, and reduce time and cost so that you can benefit from the new opportunity

If you have any questions in relation to this or any other forms of development, then we would be delighted to speak to you.
