The wooden chalet is a very fashionable habitat at the moment. More and more French people are indeed interested in this ecological, aesthetic and sustainable construction. Are you planning to build a wooden chalet to spend quality time alone, with family or friends? You must complete certain regulatory formalities before implementing your project. Chalets Dunoyer explains the planning permissions required for the construction of a wooden chalet.

Construction of a wooden chalet: building permit required

To build a habitable wooden chalet, the planning document to be produced is the building permit. Indeed, when the floor area of ​​your wooden chalet exceeds 20 m², the law requires the filing of a building permit before starting construction work.

However, the obtaining time and the required documents may vary from one municipality to another. Before submitting this request to the town hall, check whether you are authorized to build a chalet on the chosen location. Concretely, the legislation in force requires that the land intended to accommodate the wooden chalet must be buildable.

To know on which land to build your chalet, you must first ensure that it is properly authorized. To do this, refer to the PLU (Local Town Planning Plan) and request a town planning certificate from your town hall. However, it is often difficult for individuals to find building land to build on.

In order to make your life easier, Chalets Dunoyer offers you a complete service. Indeed, we are selling luxurious and prestigious chalets on building land that is well located and adapted to this project. We very frequently offer luxury chalets for sale on mountain land. We therefore take care of all the administrative procedures in advance as quickly as possible.

If you already have building land, we can also carry out construction work on your wooden chalet. Our architects and craftsmen (joiners, carpenters, fitters, etc.) have a perfect mastery of the standards to be respected in the construction of wooden chalets. The steps to be taken to obtain the relevant planning permissions are also very familiar to us.

What formalities do you need to obtain the required town planning documents?

The building permit is an urban planning authorization issued by town halls. It concerns wooden chalets with a floor area or footprint of more than 20 m². You must submit your building permit application to the town hall where the land chosen to house your habitable wooden chalet project is located.

You must attach certain documents to your building permit application. We can list among others:

  • the notice describing your land as well as the chalet or wooden house project,
  • the location plan of the land to be built,
  • the plan of the facades and roofs of the construction,
  • the sectional plan of the land and the wooden chalet…

In addition, your building permit application must also include a photograph that allows you to locate the land in its immediate environment. Some regions or departments require other additional documents such as the zoning certificate or approval by the fire safety services.
