New Government Guidance

By admin | September 30, 2015 | Law, Local Government, National Government

On the introduction of new Government Guidance national government say they’ll review this autumn whether to extend the permitted development of office to residential use beyond May 2016.

Agricultural buildings have had permitted development rights to change to dwellings for about 18 months, now subject to prior notification of the Local Authority (Use class Q as of April ‘15). So I am ready to assist more farmers in Cumbria and Lancashire with this opportunity!

Revised population projections by the Office of National Statistics are upwards, so Local Authorities will need to check their housing land supply sooner rather than later. DCLG expects their Local Plans to be ’flexible enough’!
