Then, how far should a fuel tank be from a building?
An outside fuel tank must be at least 20 feet from all buildings on the property. This OSHA regulation provides clear access to all sides of the fuel tank and a buffer between potential ignition sources in the building and the fuel.
Secondly, where can propane tanks be located? A propane tank less than 125 gallons can be placed adjacent to the house, while larger tanks must be at least 10' away. This means the tank can be more easily disguised by planting a bush or tree in front of it, making the tank placement more visually inconspicuous.
Similarly, you may ask, how far does a propane tank have to be away from a building?
OSHA has defined minimum distances between a propane tank and a building or dwelling. Any tank that holds up to 500 gallons must be at least 10 feet away from a building. A tank that holds 501 gallons to 2,000 gallons must be 25 feet away.
Do you need planning permission for a gas tank?
Planning permission You are free to install both liquid petroleum fuel tanks and oil storage tanks on your property under permitted development. Fuel tanks must not exceed a height of three metres. The maximum height for fuel tanks is 2.5 metres if within two metres of a boundary.
