National permitted development rights play an important role in the planning system, providing flexibility, reducing bureaucracy and making the most effective use of existing buildings. Permitted development rights for change of use are making an important contribution to the delivery of new homes across the country. All homes, whether granted permission on a planning application or through a permitted development right, are required to meet Building Regulations, including fire safety.
A local authority building control body is required to hold a record of any compliance certificate issued in relation to Building Regulations. Where there are outstanding non-compliance issues in relation to building regulations it is for the local authority to consider enforcement.
