Concrete for stables ?

We are just about to stick in for planning permission for wooden stables.They will be the sectional ones that strap or bolt down onto a course of bricks, what thickness of concrete would folks advise that we put them onto. Obviously we don't want overkill but nor do we want to skimp either.

6 inch's we had put down when we did ours,  
The stables have gone now but the pad is as good as the day it went down

6" without a doubt with reinforcing mesh , also I would go down a bit more around the outside edge,
