Thank you Tom. My question was poorly worded and written in a rush. The kernel of the matter is that we have a marquee located only 2m from a building. The former is an exempt building under building regulations whilst the latter is an existing building of some age. If the marquee was to be determined as a building to which the building regulations did apply then it’s wall facing the existing structure would need to offer 60min fire resistance with a minimum SOF. I can find nothing prescriptive in relation to how far a marquee should be from an existing building or a relevant boundary. Six metres tends to be an advisory between tents and caravans.

Check out 5.4 of http://www.cfpa-e.eu/wp-content/uploads/files/guidelines/CFPA_E_Guideline_No_7_2011_F.pdf they seem to be saying six metres which to  be the advisory distance between tents and caravans. Have you checked with the insurance I am sure they will have opinions on this matter.
