Save on space and money

Containers Direct now stock a range of flat pack steel garden offices which are a great alternative to wood or brick built garden buildings. The steel garden office arrives flat packed, is man portable and is ideal for erecting in previously inaccessible locations.

The units have a simple assembly each of which will take around 60 minutes and the only tools needed are a socket spanner set.

Do I need Planning Permission?

In most cases, you don't need planning permission for a steel garden office in your garden. In planning law, garden offices are fundamentally temporary buildings and do not have permanent foundations, like your house. Being below 2.5m at the highest point, the Garden office range has been developed to be within the ODPM (Office of the Deputy Prime Minister) guidelines.
Although you are unlikely to require planning permission for your steel garden office, these key questions are a good rule of thumb: You need to seek planning permission if:

  • You live in a conservation area or your home is a listed building, flat or apartment

  • You wish to locate your steel garden office within 5 metres of your home or it takes up more than 50% of your garden space

  • You want to locate your steel garden office between your home and the highway ie in your front garden or if you expect a large number of visitors to your garden office

If you answer yes to any of these questions, we recommend a quick check with your local authority, or look over the Governments Planning Portal for more information.
