CLA lobbying on new permitted development rights for temporary structures

Since last autumn, the CLA has been lobbying governments in England and Wales for an extension of the permitted development rights for an ‘additional 28 days’ for temporary uses of land in 2022.

In order to support CLA lobbying efforts, please get in touch with us if you have benefitted from the ‘additional 28 days’ rights in 2020 and 2021. We need to show that the additional 28 days were used for a variety of temporary uses of land, and benefitted local economies in less affluent as well as more affluent areas of Wales and England.

Please email CLA Head of Planning with details of:

  • the activities you used the extra days for;
  • how many extra people you employed (if applicable);
  • the impact on revenue for your own business(es), and whether you were able to invest or turn a temporary activity into a permanent one as a result;
  • any details you may have about wider spending in the local area.

Information will remain strictly confidential.
