Prior Approval Applications

Did you know that you can change the use of an agricultural building or barn, commercial buildings, offices or light industrial buildings to residential use without planning permission?… this is subject to specific criteria and has a simplified planning process to be followed known as prior approval process.

A prior approval application is looked at differently from a planning application and changing the use of a building in this way can be a quick and less onerous way to add value to a site/property.

Planning House can assess your proposal to see if there is scope and can represent you throughout the process, which is a lighter touch process than a planning application.
