Monitoring of this form of permitted development has not yet been undertaken on a London-wide level. Changes were introduced on 30 May 2013 and were originally intended to last for 3 years. This timescale would have provided the opportunity for boroughs to monitor of the impact of changes and, if necessary, a pan-London review to have been undertaken.

I will work with the boroughs to collate available information on the changes to householder permitted development rights.
