Temporary warehouses and industrial tents can be used without planning permissions in the UK if they are used for a very short duration only. This can be until 28 days at a given location, and there are exceptions to this. Exceptions take the size, position and building reason into consideration. If the buildings are in use for a longer period that 28 days one usually needs to apply for a semi-permanent or a permanent permission. Together with our local specialists, we have extensive experience with these processes in the UK and will be happy to advise you.
Many of our customers need to obtain planning permission, as they use our buildings for months or years. Our extensive experience shows: In virtually all cases planning permission will be granted. Even though it is a fairly straightforward process we can support you – irrespective of whether you opt for planning permission prior to the installation or retrospective planning permission.
As such, we teamed up with a nationally operating expert for planning work. Their team of professional planning experts and engineers has many years of experience with planning approvals for commercial buildings all across the UK. They can quickly evaluate your project, state an authoritative initial opinion on the chances of getting planning permission and undertake the necessary work for you to obtain all permissions as quickly as possible. This saves you the effort to coordinate between parties as we will be liaising directly with them regarding all technical building aspects.
If you choose to handle a temporary building planning permission application yourself, our engineering team provides you with all the plans and drawings required to support a successful planning application.
Will you know if planning is needed prior to purchasing a building? If the specification, use and location for your building is confirmed, then yes, our planning partners can advise on this.
Whether you want to obtain permission of a short-term use or for a construction permit for a long-term project, Herchenbach will provide you with the static plans for the temporary building. This includes all the design and structural drawings as well as all the necessary calculation packs. Given our vast experience and broad customer base, we offer TÜV-inspected static plans for every building size.
The TÜV-inspected static plans for the various sizes of demountable warehouse buildings satisfy the high requirements for solid building constructions, such as the wind loads in accordance with BS EN 1991 British Building Regulation and EU Building Regulation, as well as the latest other applicable standards.
If required by the authority, our buildings can be supplied with a choice of wall cladding and roof colour options. The building can therefore easily blend in with the surrounding area. Specific fire restrictions can be integrated into the walls and roofs too. Please let us know early on so we can plan accordingly, as lead times for some parts may be long.
