A Practical Guide to Permitted Changes of Use is the only up to date, comprehensive practical guide to permitted changes of use under the much changed General Permitted Development Order (‘GPDO’).

Extensive changes were made to the GPDO between 2013 and 2015 to permit new changes of use, including the residential conversion of shops, offices and agricultural buildings (among others).

The GPDO was completely revised in 2015 to consolidate these changes, and further important changes to the Order were made in April 2016.

This completely revised and updated Second Edition covers all these further changes, as well as discussing recent judicial decisions and appeal decisions on these permitted development rights.

Although planning permission for these developments is no longer required, many of them require prior approval by the local planning authority, and this has proved to be a major headache for both property owners and planning officers.

This book gives clear advice on the operation of the prior approval procedure, including the detailed requirements for prior approval applications, their processing and determination, and the way the 56-day time limit for the determination of these applications works in practice.

The book also covers other changes of use permitted by the GPDO, including flexible and temporary uses.
