- Consultation launched on new permitted development rights in England, for changes of use from new E use to C3 use and expansion of public service infrastructure
- Change of use from use class E (commercial, business and service use) to use class C3 (residential)
- Proposed new permitted development right for public service infrastructure
- Faster planning application process for public service development
- Consolidating existing permitted development rights
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. Views are also sought on a modified planning determination procedure for more substantial school, college, university, hospital and prison development for which planning permission is needed, and on consolidating and simplifying existing permitted development rights. The changes would apply in England only.
