Any raised structure equipment requires a permit.

A "raised structure" means a platform, stand, stage or some other similar structure.

If the raised structure is to remain in its completed state for more than 28 days in any 12 month period, you will need to make an application for a building warrant.

The fee for the erection and use of a raised structure is:

  • £60 – concession (charities and community groups only)
  • £120 – all other applicants
