28 Day Rule – Temporary Land Uses

Planning law allows for the temporary use of land or buildings for up to 28 days in a calendar year without the need to make an application for planning permission – commonly  known as the ’28 day rule’. 

This is set out in Class 15 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Order 1992; specifically allowing the “use of land (other than a building or land within the curtilage of a building) for any purpose, except as a caravan site or an open-air market, on not more than 28 days in total in any calendar year, and the erection or placing of moveable structures on the land for the purposes of that use”.
