Building Land & Property Without Planning Permission For Sale: Property Needing Consent For Change of Use


Paramount Investments offer freehold residential, commercial and industrial building land and properties for sale without local aothority planning permission or consent for change of use in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Leicester, Hull, Newcastle and Bradford



The value of property that is undeveloped can substantially increase (many times over) if the property gains planning permission. Property investors are thus always on the look out for property which does not presently have planning permission (and hence can be bought relatively cheaply) but which they believe will gain planning permission and hence can be sold at a profit..


The construction of new buildings, substantial alterations and additions or a fundamental change of use of land or buildings will, in most cases, require planning permission.


Planning permission is not generally needed for internal alterations to buildings that do not affect their structure or external appearance, for small external works, or most works of repair and maintenance. However you should always check first.


Local Authorities have a number of ways to control property development within their area. Enforcement Notices, Breach of Condition Notices and Stop Notices are designed to prevent or rectify breaches of planning control. Lawful Development Certificates can be sought by you to find out whether your existing or proposed use of land or buildings is lawful in planning terms.



Building Land & Development Properties Without Planning Permission For Sale in the UK

Different planning requirements apply in Conservation Areas or for Listed Buildings.

However, there are some forms of development, which do not require planning consent, or are granted consent by statute or other statutory instrument.

You have certain Permitted Development Rights for both domestic and commercial proposals.


Changes of use may also be permitted without requiring planning permission,

Your permitted development rights may have been removed by the Council issuing an Article 4 Direction.


This will mean that you need to apply for planning permission to carry out the work that would otherwise have been permitted without consent.If you are at all uncertain, or need formal confirmation that work can be carried out without obtaining planning permission you can request a 'determination' from the Council by writing to them with details of the proposal.







UK Properties For Sale: Change of Use, Planning Permission & Consent for Development Land & Properties


The definition of 'DEVELOPMENT' for planning purposes not only refers to building, engineering and other operations, but includes the need for planning permission in circumstances where you wish to change the use of land or buildings.


A change in the use of land or buildings may arise by a simple alteration in the nature of the use, or through alterations and additions which modify the use. A change of use may also arise through a material intensification in the present use, or by subtly altering the present use to a point where the changes amount to development. 


Changes of use are not always a clear-cut issue and should be treated with care.
