Fosse Bank School – Kent Umbrella canopy
This single post 5m diameter Kent Umbrella canopy clad with multiwall polycarbonate was painted green to help blend the structure into its new surroundings. This structure was chosen because of the lesser visual impact the single post would have on its woodland location compared to our multi-post options. The 5m diameter provides excellent cover for a number of pupils to still experience the ‘great outdoors’ during inclement weather, whilst also providing a degree of shade during sunnier times.
- Shape: Parasol
- Support: Freestanding
- Hoop Style: Single Box
- Cladding Type: Opal Multiwall Polycarbonate
- Location: Hildenborough
Frequently Asked Questions
- Will I require planning permission?
We always advise that you call your local planning authority as there are no hard and fast rules. They will advise on whether you require planning permission for your proposed canopy. Although it differs from region to region canopies under 30m2 may not require permission but this can be affected by situations such as proximity to neighbours, listed building status, conservation areas etc. so it always best to check. We are happy to provide free of charge, scaled drawings etc. of the proposed canopy structure to assist your application should you require.
