Briefing Note - Forthcoming changes to permitted development rights to allow change of use of redundant agricultural buildings to other business uses, and change of use of commercial buildings to residential

on 24 January 2013, the Government announced proposals for forthcoming permitted development rights for change of use for:

- redundant agricultural buildings to other business uses; and

- B1 (a) Office use of C3 residential purposes

These new permitted development rights will come into force, we are told, in late spring 2013 after the Growth and Infrastructure Bill (the Bill) has received Royal Assent.  There is a related clause in the BIll that will allow change of use to take place under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995.

Community Infrastructure Levy - New Government Guidance.

The Government (Communities and Local Government) published new guidance for the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on 14 December 2012. 

This guidance, which replaces earlier CIL guidance published in 2010, is in part, intended to end the practice of "double charging" whereby developers are asked to pay twice for the same piece of infrastructure.  In addition, the guidance places a clear obligation on examiners of CIL charging schedules and planning authorities to ensure that CIL charging schedule assist with the delivery of local plan objectives.  The updated guidance is intended to ensure that CIL charging schedules are properly tested by examiners for viability and deliverability.
