Permitted development rights

Motion detail

“This Assembly notes the Mayor’s representations to the Government in response to their consultation on permitted development rights. This Assembly believes that the Mayor did not go far enough and failed to fulfil his pledge at September Mayor’s Question Time that “Thermonuclear weapons will be used”. This Assembly believes permitted development rights that enable offices to be converted to flats without the need to apply for planning permission should not be made permanent. Bringing in permitted development on office space and other employment uses, such as light industry and warehouses, represents a threat to London’s economic recovery.”
