Over the course of the past 10 years, Permitted Development (PD) rights have come to play an ever more significant role within the planning system. These rights, often regarded as controversial, are intended to speed up the planning process for low-impact developments. However, with the need for prior approval on many schemes, and the evolving nature of the PD regime itself, there are a number of complex issues that planners and developers must face in bringing development forward under PD.
Following recent changes to the Permitted Rights Development Order, this event, the latest in our CPD series, will explore a series of issues facing practitioners seeking to make best use of PD.
It will consider:
- Issues to consider when preparing an application for prior approval for development within the curtilage of a dwelling house.
- Prior approval for change of use.
- The evolving policy environment for PD, and the strategic use of an Article 4 Direction by Local Authorities.
This panel will feature experts in planning practice, planning law and local government planning policy and is suitable for all built environment stakeholders who wish to improve their knowledge of the PD regime.
