We want your views on the consolidation of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (UCO) and Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (GPDO) .
The UCO removes the need for planning permission for many material changes of use where the planning impacts of the new uses are similar. The GPDO grants planning permission for many small and low impact developments.
We propose to consolidate the UCO and GPDO to:
- streamline the planning legislation for small and low impact developments
- make sure the most accurate version of the legislation is readily available.
