Prior approval office to residential

Clear and effective guidance on prior approval for office to residential conversion.

Permitted Development Order helps property owners transition their properties to residential use in an easier way, cutting out much of the government approval and application process.

There are, however, still aspects of a property conversion which will require approval and oversight from your local authority. Due to this, Bell Cornwell is here to provide quick and effective guidance on these conversion projects.

Our support keeps your project safe

 In accordance with the GPDO, certain changes of use,  including from office to residential use require prior approval, seeking local authority approval for the conversion under specific criteria. This allows for certain impacts and risks to be assessed including risk of flooding, highways, contamination and noise.

Navigating the prior approval process can be challenging for a busy property manager, making our clear expert guidance on the subject valuable for helping your building works to proceed safely and swiftly.

At Bell Cornwell we can assist in navigating the prior approval process and will ensure you have appropriate and complete approval from your local authority where necessary. This can save significant time on your property conversion where prior approval is concerned.
