How Close To A Boundary Can I Place My Oil Tank?

Tanks below 3,500 litres in capacity should not be placed within 760mm of a boundary such as a fence. This distance assumes that there are no flu outlets or buildings between the tank and the boundary. Where these clearances cannot be achieved, the protection measures noted in British Standard BS 5410: Part 1: 1997 must be provided, by means of a 30 minutes fire-resistant wall, which extends at least 300mm above the end points of the tank.
