This consultation contains proposed changes to two permitted development rights in the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 that were introduced to support businesses and the high street in response to the coronavirus pandemic. It covers the following areas:

  1. Class BB of Part 4 permitting moveable structures within the curtilage of a pub, café, restaurant, or historic visitor attractions,
  2. Class BA of Part 12 permitting for markets to be held by or on behalf of Local Authorities.

This consultation also contains proposed new permitted development rights to support delivery of infrastructure for Defence on the Defence estate.

Why your views matter

This consultation seeks views on the future of two temporary permitted development rights listed above, including the benefits of the rights as they exist, and views on proposed mitigation if they were to be made permanent. We are also seeking views on equality and impact of the rights on local authorities, businesses, and the community.

This consultation also seeks views on proposed new permitted development rights for the Ministry of Defence to enable the modernisation and development of the Defence estate.
