Today we are delighted to launch ‘New hutting developments: Good practice guidance on the planning, development and management of huts and hut sites’.
Whether, you’re a planner, an architect or a prospective hut builder, this guidance will be a useful source on: the Scottish Planning Policy definition of a hut; siting and location; services; the land surrounding huts. The document has a strong focus on preserving the low-impact, environmentally sustainable ethos of traditional hutting and also looks at some non-planning considerations such as ownership and hut site tenure.
The Thousand Huts campaign team and Planning Advisory Group have spent 2 years working with planning and building professionals to produce this guide to help planners, architects and hut builders alike achieve good practice in new hut developments. This work was supported by The Planning Exchange Foundation, and has been reviewed by planning, legal and tenancy professionals in the public and private sectors and at a local and national level. It is designed to help support the rolling out of Scottish Planning Policy (SPP) on huts.
