As far as the relevant law is concerned, a caravan is “… any structure designed or adapted for human habitation which is capable of being moved from one place to another” (whether by being towed, or by being transported on a motor vehicle or trailer) provided they retain the element of mobility.
We still recommend that you speak to your local planning authority for advice.

The table below explains the durability of timber that is left below ground for water and rot to penetrate in the worst possible conditions. as an example soft wood that most pods are made of are classed as NOT DURABLE by TRADA.
Durability is the measurement of how long specific species of timber would last is a 50mm x 50mm cross section was left in the ground unprotected. An untreated Oak beam, which is classed as "durable", for example, will last 15-25 years depending on environmental conditions.
The following scale of durability was outlined by the TRADA - the Timber Research and Development Association.
MORE THAN 25 YEARS
LESS THAN 5 YEARS
The pod is completely encased in beautiful British cedar, It has a very high resistance to decay,and rarely shrinks or twist. it has superb acoustic and thermal properties. British Western red cedar is classed as moderately durable and does not require treatment for external use. expected lifespan is around 20+ years
Also for complete piece of mind upgrade to the super durable Canadian western red cedar, expected 60 year plus lifespan*
Canadian Western Red Cedar is much slower grown than its UK counterpart resulting in a denser, darker wood with a more varied colour palette. It also renowned for offering a cladding that is completely clear and free of imperfections – i.e. zero knots and a tight, even grain.
The pods have our own unique PVC door and windows, which set it apart from the rest. (maintenance free).
