Boris's new deal speech, outlined changes to building and planning regulations.

These new regulations will allow commercial properties, to be coverted into homes. Without the need for a planning application.

Extensions will also be relaxed, allowing people to build upwards, subject to neighbours approval.

These can also be purchased via goverment schemes.

The future is bright, the future is packed sardines in ex-commerical buildings.

As i recall, there was already a relaxation in the conversion of light industrial classified buildings to residential that has been in place for a few years.  As with this relaxation, there will still be some restrictions relating to services and area. For example: you surely couldn't convert 1 unit in an industrial estate to residential if the other 10 are clearly still in industrial use. That would just be silly.

So similar to now and likely to get knocked back because Norman No-Change with time on his hands wants to cause a fuss.
