Thought you were running out of time to submit that Class B8 building to a dwelling application?

Think again!

This morning the Housing Minister announced that to further support housing delivery, applicants will have a further year in which to benefit from the temporary permitted development right for the change of use of buildings used for storage and distribution to residential use. The right will be extended by a year until 10 June 2019.

Hit the 3 dwelling buffer with your Class Q conversions? Think again – look for up to 5!

The Housing Minister announced this morning that the General Permitted Development Order will be changed on the 6th April (only for a year) to allow the conversion of agricultural buildings for;

  • up to 3 larger homes within a maximum of 465 square metres or
  • up to 5 smaller homes each no larger than 100 square metres or
  • a mix of both, within a total of no more than 5 homes, of which no more than 3 may be larger homes.

So, if you have previously only been able to develop up to the previous 3 dwelling limit, give us a call to discuss how you might be able to benefit from this temporary extension for dwellings from agricultural buildings.  Time is of the essence!
