Why choose a wooden agricultural or equestrian barn?

  • Natural beauty: Wood has a warm and natural beauty that can create a welcoming and peaceful environment for your horses. It can also complement the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.

  • Durability: When constructed properly, wooden barns can be extremely durable and long-lasting. They can withstand harsh weather conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, and wind.

  • Ventilation: Wooden barns can provide good ventilation for your animals. Wood is a breathable material that can allow for good air circulation, which can help keep your animals healthy and comfortable.

Do you need planning permission for equestrian barns?

In the United Kingdom, planning permission may be required for equestrian barns depending on various factors, such as the size, location, and intended use of the barn.

If the equestrian barn is considered to be a "permitted development," then planning permission may not be required. Permitted development rights allow for certain types of development to be carried out without the need for planning permission, subject to certain limitations and conditions.

However, if the equestrian barn does not meet the criteria for permitted development, then planning permission will be required. In such cases, you will need to submit a planning application to your local planning authority.


The planning application will typically include details about the size, location, design, and intended use of the equestrian barn, along with other relevant information.

It's important to note that the regulations regarding planning permission for equestrian barns can vary depending on the location and specific circumstances.


Therefore, it's always best to consult with your local planning authority or a professional planning consultant to determine whether planning permission is required for your specific situation.
