Planning for a log cabin

Do you need planning permission to put a log cabin in a field? – I only plan to use it now and then when doing work on the land.

The fact that it is a log cabin you plan to build is irrelevant.  Under planning law certain buildings constructed for agricultural purposes are exempt from development.  The exact nature, purpose, design and size of these buildings should be set out in the planning section of your local authority’s web site.

If, as I suspect, you propose to use this log cabin for living in while working on the land then this is not an agricultural use, it is a residential use and would likely need planning permission.
