Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

Strictly speaking storage containers are non-permanent so in most cases not. However if the storage container is going to be in a residential area, near a road junction, or likely to cause complaints from neighbours, I would recommend you check with your local planning authorities as to whether they have any specific bylaws. I hope that this helps. Please rate positive. Thanks
