Proposed consequential changes to existing permitted development rights.

IN THIS ARTICLE

The government reformed the Use Classes Order from 1 September 2020 to establish new uses classes. These changes include the creation of a new broad Commercial, Business and Service (E) use class which includes shops, banks, restaurants and offices etc and provides for greater flexibility for high streets and town centres.

Existing permitted development rights that make reference to the former use classes continue to apply until 31 July 2021. This technical consultation sets out detail of the proposed consequential changes to existing permitted development rights that make reference to the former use classes and invites comments.

This consultation by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government runs from 13 May until 3 June 2021.
