Article summary

Planning analysis: The government has launched a consultation on proposals to create two new permitted development rights—permitting the change of use from the new E use class (commercial, business and service) to C3 use class (residential), and permitting schools, colleges, universities, hospitals and prisons to expand and adapt their buildings.
