How far should a Porta Cabin be from my boundary fence?

My neighbour has recently purchased a large Porta Cabin from which to run her business. The structure will be based in a residential ares consisting of single storey detached bungalows. She has planning permission for a brick garage but obviously does not cover a portable structure. She is planning to locate it backing directly on to my boundary fence. It will be in clear view from both my dining room and kitchen windows. I appreciate that there are planning regulations relating to its placement in relation to the road and her property but I wondered if someone might know if it also has to be set back a certain distance from my boundary too? Many thanks in anticipation!

If she has planning for a garage in the same location, I can't see it being too much of an issue, except the design of the building will no longer be in keeping... and thus different from her planning... thus very naughty... so i would report her. Also, are there any convenants on the land to people in the area, so they are not allowed to run business from their homes... check your deeds :-)
