  • The amendments to the Use Classes Order which have been in effect since 1st September, and how this provides more flexibility to asset managers to enable building uses to change without the need for planning permission.
  • The proposed changes to the Planning System overall, which are subject to consultation. This includes the re-zoning of land to make it easier to develop and the introduction of a new development tax based on land value.
