Hoping to boost the economy, UK PM Johnson unveils new planning rules

The changes, which are planned to come into effect by September through changes to the law, include:

— More types of commercial premises having total flexibility to be repurposed through reform of the Use Classes Order.

— A building used for retail, for instance, would be able to be permanently used as a café or office without requiring a planning application and local authority approval.

— Pubs, libraries, village shops and other types of uses essential to communities will not be covered by these flexibilities.

— A wider range of commercial buildings will be allowed to change to residential use without the need for a planning application.

— Builders will no longer need a normal planning application to demolish and rebuild vacant and redundant residential and commercial buildings if they are rebuilt as homes.

— Property owners will be able to build additional space above their properties via a fast track approval process, subject to neighbor consultation.

— Work will begin to look at how land owned by the government can be managed more effectively. ($1 = 0.8145 pounds) (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by William James)
