What is Change of Use of Application?

A change of use application is necessary for change of use planning permission, and can be needed in a variety of circumstances. For example, it can apply if you want to change a shop to offices, a storage unit to a shop, or any kind of retail unit to a residential property in any area such as London, or across the UK.
Your chances of success are entirely dependent on what your local authority’s current requirements and plans for the area are, and that’s where you need professional help. For example, if local planning is keen to keep a certain number of retail units available, your chances of turning that shop into a home will need a bit of extra help in terms of getting you planning permission.
At AC Design Solutions, we can advise you on the change of use application requirements, and help you in getting the land use consent you are looking for.
