Permitted Development

Permitted development rights are a versatile way of converting, extending, changing the use of or erecting buildings without the need for full planning permission.

The current range of permitted development rights are a very useful way to unlock the hidden potential of a wide range of buildings. Whether it be current or former agricultural, light or general industrial, offices, shops or banks to be turned into a residential use, or for a change and mixture between commercial uses, our extensive knowledge will help to assess and enhance your development proposals.

These rights also allow for the extension of business units and houses, the provision of outbuildings and the possible development of up to 1000m² of agricultural development.

Effective use of the rights can widen development opportunities and provide a springboard for diversity. The legislation and guidance around all of the different types of permitted development rights can be complex. Bloomfields can navigate these comprehensively to ensure that any restrictions are complied with and no opportunities are missed.
