The most recent London Borough to announce their intention to remove permitted development rights for office to residential conversions is Croydon.
Croydon have published plans showing the area of the intended Article 4 direction which relates to the whole of the Croydon Opportunity Area. If the Communities Secretary accepts the direction, it will come into force from 10th September 2015.
We have obtained permission for ‘Class J’ conversions in a number of London Boroughs, including Croydon. If we can help you, please get in touch
