This policy was introduced to speed up the planning process and tackle housing shortages, but has it had the desired effect and will recent changes to the rules have a positive or negative impact on our town and city centres?
Victoria Leam, solicitor at Kuits, and Justine Entezari, associate at Iceni Projects, joined Place North West reporter Dan Whelan to run the rule over the permitted development landscape and discuss how their clients are navigating the complicated web of changing legislation.
Questions asked in this podcast:
- What is permitted development and why is it important?
- Who does PD benefit?
- What are the positives and negatives of office to residential conversions?
- What prompted the Government to make changes to PD and use class legislation recently?
- What has the response to these changes been and how will they affect our town and city centres in the future?
