Shipping Containers

Within the Hinchinbrook Shire there has been an increase in the number of shipping containers being placed on properties and being utilised for storage purposes, with containers ranging in various sizes, colours and conditions. Council embraces the many uses of shipping containers but regulates their placement and timeframes onsite, so they don’t create unsightly features or create safety hazards.

Property owners have responsibilities and approvals are required to place a shipping container on a property, on a short-term or long-term basis.

Find out about the type of approval you need and how to apply for one, before placing a shipping container on your property, by reviewing the below Shipping Container Factsheet.
