  • Replay Podcast 42 – Linda Wright from PLANiTWright Talks About Making Money Via Planning Including Office To Residential, HMO’s And Land development
July 28, 2018

My interview with Linda Wright from PLANiTWright covers Planning approval and how to make more money.

Getting Planning on a property can seriously increase it's wealth and with the extension of "Permitted Development right" it means that you can continue to convert certain types of Commercial to Residential.

In this podcast interview we discuss Office to residential, Extending houses to provide HMO Accommodation (Houses of Multiple Occupation / Multilet), Land Development and Property Flipping.

A really informative interview, Linda really knows her stuff and should be the first call you make if you're contemplating getting planning permission on a property.

If you're going to do it, then do it right.

Permitted development rights in the UK are a crucial aspect of planning law, allowing certain building works and changes of use to be carried out without needing to apply for planning permission. These rights facilitate flexibility and ease for homeowners and developers, but it's essential to understand their scope and limitations.

At the core, permitted development rights are designed to simplify the planning process. They enable minor improvements and changes, like small extensions, loft conversions, and changes in the use of land or buildings, under certain conditions. This can be particularly advantageous for homeowners looking to expand their living space or for businesses needing to adapt premises without navigating the often complex and lengthy planning application process.

However, these rights are not universal. They vary depending on the location, type of property, and previous development work done on the property. For instance, properties in conservation areas, listed buildings, or areas of outstanding natural beauty have more restrictions. In these cases, even minor changes might require formal planning permission.

It's also essential to note that while permitted development rights offer a degree of freedom, they don't eliminate the need for compliance with building regulations. These regulations ensure that any development is safe, energy-efficient, and accessible, among other standards.

For those looking to utilise these rights, it's advisable to obtain a Lawful Development Certificate from the local planning authority. This certificate is not mandatory but can be a valuable safeguard, proving that the development is lawful and meeting all necessary criteria.

In summary, UK permitted development rights offer a streamlined way to make certain changes to properties without the need for full planning permission. While they provide flexibility, understanding the specific conditions and limitations that apply to your property is essential to ensure compliance and avoid future legal complications.
