Can anybody tell me if the changes coming in in October 2017 will allow change of use from B2 to C3.
In response to your question “Can anybody tell me if the changes coming 2017 will allow change of use from B2 to C3?” permitted development rights to allow the conversion of Use Class B1 to Use Class C3 were made permanent by the Government with effect from 6 April 2016. Whether this is the case for B2 by Oct 2017 is still unclear. It would also be difficult to provide you with an accurate answer without the exact location and borough of the B2 premise you are referring to.
