Our specialist planning team deliver regular live and on demand bitesize planning webinars. Each webinar explores at least one key planning issue or update that impacts on property developments and regeneration.

In the third webinar of our planning series, Rebecca Sells, an Associate in our Nottingham Planning team considers the Use Classes Order. The significant reforms made to the Use Classes Order 2020 are nearly two years old, but still raise questions for landowners, developers and local authorities alike.

In particular, this webinar:

  • Provides a refresher on the use classes and a reminder of what changed in 2020;
  • Gives an update on the Court of Appeal decision in the challenge to the 2020 changes by Rights: Community Action; and
  • Considers whether the reforms to the Use Classes Order 2020 (and associated PD rights) have been successful in providing greater flexibility of uses.

This is essential viewing for anyone working in planning, property development and construction, particularly planners, local authorities, housebuilders and developers.
