Storage in East Sussex

Does anyone know of any dry storage in East Sussex where I can park my
workshop for about a year? I reckon I need something like 500-750
square foot with level hiab access for an estimated 20-25 tons

Theres a big place in Mill Lane, Ashington, West Sussex - should fit right in there . Of course it may have ben sold by the time you go back fot it...
Seriously though, it may cost an absolute packet to store that much gear for a year. Have you thought about buying a couple of containers (e-bay or other dealers) filling them up and storing these on your new building site for a year? The advantage is just packing them from your end once and then you could sell them again at the end of the year and probably not lose a penny.

Peter,
Yes I have, but there are planning issues with placing containers in the curtilage. I reckon that I'll need 4 off 20 foot containers, but as there is no hard standing, and as they'd have to be loaded on site as the stuff is too heavy, even without the planning issue it may be a no go. There is a firm specialising in container storage in Robertsbridge only 11 miles away, but they want £6 per container per day, which mounts up to over £10K

Ouch! Ouch! and thrice Ouch! Thats a bit of a serious problem there Andrew. It would almost be cheaper to rent an industrial unit for a year.....

Andrew,
I'm curious to know if they have a minimum period and/or drop-off/collection fee....
Cheers,

Weld a steel bund around the top 12" deep, fill with soil and they are now plant pots, no planning permission.
Joking aside what about a poor farmer who wants to make a few bob storing some containers, he gets to keep the containers after the move ?

containers,
More or less what I did when we last moved. Had all my stuff stored in an empty battery chicken shed. Took a month on n off to move it all up there.

I'm no planner but I thought that a temporary building needed no permission

Not always the case. I spend a fair amount of time on the Isle of Mull; a recent test case up there made it clear that you need planning permission to erect poly tunnels on agricultural land. Similarly, permanently sited caravans, caravan and camping sites...

Oddly enough there is a disused poultry processing unit only 1000 yrds from the back of the land, and the chap is offering storage at £4 per sq foot per annum plus rates of about the same, but the 'loading bay' is a smallish flatbed height platform that I think will be very difficult to hiab into, and the bloke is rather eccentric and I'm not sure that I trust him

A temporary construction doesn't normally need permission, but IIRC temporary is defined as 28 days or less.
Having said that, it may well be worth asking the planning office if the containers can be stored for a fixed time. Assuming that it's a planning issue and not some other problem.

Small world. I don't spend as much time as I'd Iike on Mull but I'll be in Calgary in a month or so. Might even buy up there if I can find something suitable.....

We're up there for Easter week, but will be at the opposite end of the island, a mile outside Fionnphort.

£4/sq ft could be fairly good if it's a suitable site. The cheapest Industrial units around here are now about £8 sq ft + all the other crap taxes.
The site I used was all level ground well as level as agricultural sites go! We couldn't Hiab right into the buildings, but got close enough and used rollers to get right in.

Scotland has completely different laws on land use and access, dating back to the time when the english "landowners" wanted to remove the original inhabitants.
