Hi. Has anyone got examples of firewood (and timber planks) drying barn as being permitted development for forestry purposes? In my view drying timber in the woods (from my own homegrown timber) should be part of my normal forestry operation & I think a drying a barn is necessary. None of my pallet stacks with tin or tarp roofs hold out water as well as a barn. However the planners say a timber drying barn requires full planning permission as a change from forestry to industrial use (I'm on a National Park which makes things a bit less easy). Has anyone got any examples of of wood drying barns being permitted development under prior notification? On appeal or as PN would be good, especial in a national park or aonb. I know of Druid Farm on DNP and Doynton in South Gloucestershire AONB, but could do with more examples. Thank you.
Hi all. I have a client with a site that has an existing consent, won on appeal, for a number of units (which they are to replan with new application) with no conditions relating to tree felling, protection etc The site is in a conservation area and I'm not sure if separate consent for felling / access pruning works would be required for removal of any trees due to the re-plan of layout. ? Am I right in thinking, that they will have to show any significant trees to be removed as part of the new site application which will be subject to approval? Thanks for any input

Dear all. Can you please offer any advice. I am looking to apply for planning permission to build some barn buildings to help with timber work in 22acre mixed woodland (*mainly undermanaged and overcrowded)... Thinking of 3 structures. 1) shelter for mobile sawmill and dry covered workspace. 2) Big barn to store & maintain machinery & stack drying timber (also double up as bit of a workshop). 3) Barn to act as dry room for workers, and small office with compost toilet. Also could do with a firewood drying barn but think that this could just be a temporary pole barn structure in a field? Can anyone offer any advice on planning permission needed in national parks? Also what should I consider as essential in my buildings? I am felling 5acres of infected larch this winter which I want to process onsite & store for future firewood sales. What size barns do I need to make? Also what do people suggest for roofing options? Many thanks. Doug
