~~How Long Will A Polytunnel Last?
There is no reason why our galvanised steel polytunnel frames would not last 30 years and more. The polythene
cover will need replacing, although the polythene supplied has been developed with resistance against
sunlight. The additives in a polytunnel cover prevent UV degradation for up to 5 years and it is not uncommon
for a cover to last 8-10 years.

Do I Need Planning Permission For a Tunnel?
Normally you do not need planning permission for a domestic size or garden polytunnel to be sited in your garden.
• In general you do not need planning permission for polytunnels. However you will need to apply for planning permission if the polytunnel is nearer to any road than the nearest part of the house, unless there’s at least 20m between the polytunnel and a road
• If the polytunnel would have any part forward of the front of the house.
• If the polytunnel would be more than 3m in height.
• If the polytunnel is to be sited in a field, then change of use may apply
• If the site on which you intend to construct the polytunnel has a listed building or is in a Conservation Area,
a National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, There are further restrictions to planning within these
• If the polytunnel would be for commercial use
• If you want to build a large commercial polytunnel or more than one tunnel, or If you are in any doubt, a call to your local planning department will determine if planning permission or change of use is required.
