Do I need planning permission for storage containers

Sep 15, 2022

Hannah Moule, Founder and Director of The Rural Planning Co answers one of our frequently asked questions...

Do I need planning permission for storage containers?

We regularly come across farmyards with a handful of storage containers ‘round the back’, often let out for storage to businesses or individuals, creating very useful rental income.

There is a common thought that these containers don’t need planning permission because they are moveable / mobile. Whilst its something you probably don’t want to hear, unfortunately this isn’t the case.
