Expansion in the types of development which can take place without the need for a planning application

Time Published 3rd July 2020

The Government has introduced several (many time-limited) reforms of the planning system which would enable certain forms of development to take place without the need for a planning application (‘permitted development’). These include permitting blocks of flats to be extended upwards by two storeys to create new homes. They also introduce a new permitted development right that would allow in principle, a temporary market to be held by or on behalf of a local authority (including town and parish councils) in England from 1st July 2020 to 31st December 2020.
