help with building on my land

6 Replies



Hi   I'd like to build a block of 4 timber framed stables on my land. I have all the plans etc but I'd like to know how long any planning I need will take to be approved. Is it even likely to be approved? The stables would go on half an acre behind my house. They will have to go on a concrete base.   thanks   xx

Hi As usual it will depend in which council you come under, and do you have neighbours who would object ?

If you need more help please feel free to contact me

Its one of those questions no one can answer.  Our friends waited 2 years for their planning to be approved, on the other hand our neighbours only waited 6 mnths.

Hi, we built some timber stables 2 years ago and are really pleased with them.  we looked at the various options and found a company in the UK that built and transported the sections at a very good price.  Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in coming to see ours (near Lagos)

Best wishes

Thanks for the replies


we have only fields around us with neighbours not overlooking, so doubt they will object but I will check.

 Anna, how long did it take you to get planning? was it tricky? We are in Loule :) I'm looking at using the stable company, maybe it is the same as you?

Hi now i know the area try Guido Wanner in Soa Bras, it is an amazing timber merchant, who also build, there is a nice guy there called george who speaks english, could be worth a quote.

If you have no neighbours apart from the concrete base the rest is a non permanent construction.

If you would like some help with info i have a number for a Portuguse lady who is brilliant, and worked in the land registry in Loule.

Hope this helps and good luck

In housing developments, expect to spend in the $50,000 to $100,000 range, although it can go much higher depending on your location Pro-Mix concrete suppliers near me in London providing the best quality of all types of concrete mix.
