Property Developer Richard Carr is pleased to see the government make one of its better housing initiatives permanent as of April 6th, 2016.
The amendment to the General Permitted Development Order was introduced almost two years ago on a temporary basis, however following the Prime Minister’s heralding of the change it will be made permanent on April 6th.
Richard Carr believes its introduction was a clever move by the government and believes it will help increase building in the country.
Upon being made a permanent amendment new conditions were added to it. Local planning authorities can consider “impacts of noise from commercial premises on the intended occupiers of the development”.
Also, the changes agreed through planning will have to be completed within three years of prior approval.
