EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


This Order amends the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995. Part 3 of Schedule 2 to that Order grants planning permission for certain changes of use by reference to classes of use specified in the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 SI 1987 No.764. That Order is amended by the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) (Amendment) (England) Order 2005 which substitutes for the former class A3 (food and drink), three new use classes: restaurants and cafes (A3), drinking establishments (A4) and hot food takeaways (A5).

Article 2 of this Order, which amends Part 3 of Schedule 2 to the 1995 Order, reflects the three new use classes, which replace the former class A3 (food and drink). The three new use classes are given permitted development rights to change to shops (A1) uses or financial and professional services (A2) uses specified in the 1987 Order.

Drinking establishments and hot food takeaways are given permitted development rights to change to restaurants and cafes.

Article 2 has the effect of removing the permitted development rights for motor car showrooms to change to shops (A1) uses.
