Converting offices to residential - housing solution or office shortage?

Permitted Development (PD) Rights were introduced by the Government in May 2013 with the aim of increasing the supply of housing. The rules allow office buildings to be converted into residential use without formal planning consent.
This has been welcomed by many as it allows older, low value office buildings to be converted into much needed residential accommodation.read more
