Conversion of Warehouse to Residential

In an appeal decision a Planning Inspector has confirmed that the conversion of storage floorspace in a warehouse building to residential in East London in the form of ten flats does not need planning permission under the “prior notification procedure” for “permitted development” under Class P of the Town and Country Planning General Permitted Development Order 2015. Given the previous use as a warehouse in a residential area, the Inspector concluded on the principal issue that the development would not give rise to unacceptable transport or highways impacts with regard to parking.
