You don't need a permit if the shipping container is on your own property
Shipping containers are a convenient way of moving household goods and furniture. But if they're not placed on your own property, they can cause traffic and parking problems.
You'll need a permit.
If you need a permit, you need to apply for one at least 10 working or business days in advance.
Apply for a shipping container permit
When we’ve received your application, we’ll process and return it to you with a permit number attached. If for some reason, we can’t issue you with a permit, we’ll contact you to discuss other options.
If you can't put the shipping container directly outside your property and instead want to place it outside your neighbour's property, you will need to get your neighbour's permission. In this case, we will ask for your neighbour's contact details and you will need to provide proof of their consent.

You'll need to make a Corridor Access Request (CAR) rather than applying for a permit. To apply for a CAR, go to: BeforeUDig
We can ask for the shipping container to be moved or relocated at any time if it is hazardous or a nuisance. If you don’t comply when we ask you to move the shipping container, we may move it at your expense.
