Office to Residential Permitted Development Rights: Central London

The Mayor of London’s office has issued new Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on the Central London Activities Zone to help central London Boroughs avoid the office to residential permitted development rights, following the Government announcement that the current exemption in central London will end in May 2019.

The Mayor’s office believe that valueable office space in the area has recently been lost to new housing, which it is concerned could impact upon London’s economic success in the future.

The SPG provides advice from the Mayor for putting together the necessary evidence for a successful Article 4 Direction.
