  • Temporary buildings are permitted under Part 4 Class A General Permitted Development (England) Order 2015, SI 2015/596 in connection with and for the duration of operations being or to be carried out over that land. Is there any time limit on how long the temporary buildings can remain?

Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, SI 2015/596, Sch 2 Pt 4, Class A (the GPDO) provides for a permitted development right for:

‘The provision on land of buildings, moveable structures, works, plant or machinery required temporarily in connection with and for the duration of operations being or to be carried out on, in, under or over that land or on land adjoining that land.’

Para A.1 provides that development is not permitted by Class A, Part 4 if the operations are mining operations or if planning permission is required for those operations but is not granted or deemed to be granted.

Para A.1 provides that development permitted by Class A, Part 4 is subject to the condition that, when the operations have been carried out—

  1. any building, structure, works, plant or machinery permitted by Class A is removed, and

  2. any adjoining land on which development permitted by Class A has been carried out is, as soon as reasonably practicable, reinstated to its condition before that development was carried out

As such, the temporary buildings permitted by Class A, Part 4 are permitted for as long as the operations in connection with which the temporary buildings are required are still being carried out. Once those operations have been carried out, the buildings must be removed.
