The house will be owned by me. Its already an existing house in powys area. I basically want to know if there is any law that limits the amount of people that you can have living on a piece of land (22 acres) in yurts/caravans, in addition to a main house and holiday cottage outbuildings. (main house and holiday cottage outbuildings already there, as I say.)
sorry, yurts and shephard huts that was meant to say.
There is no legallimit BUT you are going to need planning consent. Even a campsite, which onlyhas tents coming and going, needs planning consent.
The same applies toa caravan site, which is being used for people to live in the caravans, even ifnot permanently and even if people don't live in the caravans, it can then bestorage issue.
If you get planningconsent, the number will be set by the planning authority, based upon theimpact on the environment, access, noise, activities, et cetera.
Before proceedinganywhere with this, the first thing I would do would be to speak to a specialistplanning consultant who has experience in rural matters and getting permission,particularly for campsites/caravan sites and the like.
Planningconsultants have the ear and knowledge of the mind of how the local planningofficers work and in my experience over several applications, the money spentis well spent.
Can I help further?
