Boris Johnson announced recently that the nation should build, build, build to kick start the economy and start the recovery from the coronavirus.
Johnson announced sweeping planning changes which should make it easier to build homes where people want to live! The main changes announced includes:
· A wider range of commercial buildings will be allowed to change to residential use without the need for a planning application.
· Builders will no longer need a normal planning application to demolish and rebuild vacant and redundant residential and commercial buildings if they are rebuilt as homes.
· Property owners will be able to build additional space above their properties via a fast track approval process, subject to neighbour consultation.
Pawlus can help navigate these new planning laws, just give the team a call!
Will these new changes encourage you to develop your property?
