A self-storage development proposed for a rural business park recently received zoning approval from the borough council in North Waltham, England. TT Tents, a supplier of event tents and temporary buildings, applied to the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in July to change the area’s zoning to allow self-storage.
The project will include 72 storage containers comprised of 24 single-story, 48 two-story and 14 larger units, according to the source. It will also include 11 vehicle-parking spaces. Operating hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Under conditions imposed by the borough council, site construction must begin within three years.
TT Tents predicted that customers could make as many as 14 trips per week to their storage containers, according to the source. The company expects the smaller units to be used by the general public to hold smaller seasonal items and furniture. The larger containers might be used by those in a temporary transition between residences.
TT Tents provides temporary or semi-permanent buildings for commercial use including offices, storage buildings, workshops, car-show rooms, classrooms and retail space.
