Frequently asked questions

Can I get permission for a temporary building?

In some cases, planning permission for a temporary building or use may be granted even though an application for a permanent building on the same land would be refused.

For example, permission might be granted for an application to erect a temporary building to last seven years on land which will be required while road improvements are carried out on the site.

You will need to contact your local planning authority to learn more about the planning rules for temporary buildings.

You can find contact information for your local planning authority on the Planning Portal.
