WP Guide to Permitted Development Changes of Use

Our Guide

Planning Regulations allow some changes of use to take place without the need for planning permission, in some instances following a ‘prior approval’ process. The Government has introduced a series of reforms to widen these allowances and reduce the need for formal applications but this has now made the process rather more complicated.

It is therefore strongly advised that you seek our expert assistance before making investment decisions, not least as many of the allowances are subject to restrictions and limitations. Nonetheless, this guide should give some initial assistance.

The WP guide is being reviewed and updated to reflect the latest changes introduced by the Government, meanwhile please contact us with any queries.
