Conservation areas in spotlight

Continuing our spotlight on the recent changes to the planning system, our latest 'spotlight' event was on the impact of the latest permitted development rights, with a specific reference to conservation areas.  

Despite strong opposition from Civic Voice, the Government will be applying a new permitted development right in conservation areas to allow the change of use from Commercial, Business, and Service use class to residential, without planning permission.  This informal briefing by Civic Voice explained in plain English what the recent Government announcements actually mean for conservation areas and why you and your civic society need to be aware.
