Our client has had informal planning advice from the Lake District National Park in relation to the change of use from business premises to residential use. In summary, the advice states that the government grants planning permission for certain changes of use which can be carried out without the need for a planning application – known as permitted developments. It is their opinion providing the lawful use of the building is an office (B1 use) it would be permitted development to convert the office to a dwelling. The full planning document is attached to the particulars.
