Keystone Law is delighted to announce the impending publication of Martin’s Practical Guide to Permitted Changes of Use – a comprehensive guide for all (UK) property and planning professionals alike.

The only up-to-date guide to permitted changes of use, under the much-changed General Permitted Development Order, the work is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the process of residential conversions or other changes of property use.

After a general introduction to the subject in Chapter 1, the detailed work provides a clear commentary on:

  • each of the Classes of permitted changes of use
  • prior approval applications, dealing with the content and submission of the application, its processing and determination, and the operation of the 56-day rule
  • temporary and recreational uses of land, including caravan sites and camping
  • the loss or removal of permitted development rights
  • the identification of the ‘planning unit’ and the ‘curtilage’ of a building.

The book will officially go on sale in October and, in both print form and as an eBook, can be pre-ordered by readers at a special pre-publication price of £35. To pre-order a copy, visit the following link:
