Companies seeking a temporary space solution are being reminded of the need to plan ahead.
Securing local authority approval for all types of development can be a complex and time-consuming procedure.
But temporary building experts Spaciotempo have produced a guide which aims to demystify the planning application process.
The document, entitled ‘Planning Ahead To Boost Your Business’ is available for free download at http://www.spaciotempo.co.uk/resources/white-papers
It reveals what steps are involved and covers issues such as timescales, cost and rules on Permitted Development.
As market leaders in the design, manufacture and installation of temporary structures, Spaciotempo are well placed to help decision-makers get the complete picture on the subject of planning permission.
And the guide also includes details on how the Staffordshire-based company can support customers by taking the lead role.
Scott Jameson, managing director of Spaciotempo, said: “Most development in England and Wales requires planning permission and that applies to temporary buildings too.
“The prospect of negotiating what can be a complex process might at first appear daunting, but this new guide will help people see what’s involved and details a number of factors which must be considered.
“It also reveals how we can provide specialist help and guidance as part of our comprehensive approach to customer service.”
Spaciotempo’s temporary buildings can provide a flexible solution which enables companies to expand and manage variances in their business with minimal disruption.
The company has more than 40 years’ experience of providing ‘space on demand’ for the commercial and industrial sectors, working in environments such as warehousing and storage, production, logistics and transport, retail and chilled and ambient storage.
By providing a complete service, from initial enquiry through to aftersales and maintenance, Spaciotempo offers a single-source solution which ensures a consistent approach.
Mr Jameson added: “Temporary buildings can play a key role for businesses and we can guide customers along every step of the way.
“Applying for planning permission is just the first part of that process and we do our very best to ensure applications get a green light from the authorities.
“We can take clients through what’s required or our experts can manage an entire initiative if necessary.
“That way, projects can get off to the best possible start, disruption is minimised and businesses can concentrate on what they do best.”
