Temporary buildings planning permission and application service

If you are looking to install a temporary building then Aganto can arrange and organise, via an established partnership with our third party planning consultants, the whole planning permission and application process on your behalf, including drawings, plans, completed application forms and all fee arrangements.

Planning permission advice and guidance

Should you decide not to take up our full service there are still many ways we can assist you with your temporary buildings application.

The elevational drawings and floor plans required for your application are provided as a matter of course by Aganto. In addition we can supply with you a complete set of structural calculations demonstrating how your temporary building meets the required snow and wind loadings for the UK.

It is also worth remembering that we are able to supply a range of different coloured wall and roof cladding so buildings can blend in with natural environments or match corporate colours of existing buildings.

Lastly, we will assist you as much as we can with application forms, speaking to the council on your behalf or sourcing additional plans and drawings.

Planning guidelines

Some useful pointers if you do decide to carry out the temporary buildings planning permission and application in-house:
  • Usually if a building is in situ for more than 28 days it will require planning permission, although there are some exemptions.
  • Eight weeks minimum should be allowed for an application to be approved, however applications that aren't contentious might be shorter.
  • If the temporary building is to be used as an interim solution during a refurbishment or rebuild project that has already been granted permission, you will not need to seek planning for the temporary structure.
  • Before submission of your application and during the approval process, make and retain good regular contact with your Planning Officer. The more regular communication you have the less likely delays will occur or additional information asked for late on in the process.

“As no foundations were required, the buildings were installed so quickly and easily, serving our need for weather proof storage perfectly.   If all our contractors worked as quickly and professionally as Aganto our lives would be a lot easier!”

“When we needed additional warehousing space we approached various temporary building companies and considered alternative options.  Aganto stood out straight away and from the word go we were extremely impressed and reassured by their level of expertise and knowledge.”

“The huge cost savings we have achieved by using Aganto buildings has in no way compromised the quality, durability or success of our branches.  We know that an Aganto building gives us the same result as a permanent building at a fraction of the cost and time.”
