Convert your office space into residential housing

11th August 2020

It is likely that the way every business uses their office space is subject to review. This will be due to the current relaxation of lockdown measures from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the restrictions placed on our ability to work in a collective office environment.

Extracting added value from the office space you no longer require through Permitted Development Rights (PDR) may be an option for you.

What is Office to Residential Permitted Development Rights (PDR)?

First introduced in 2013, the PDR route allows office buildings to be converted to residential in a streamlined planning process of 8 weeks. The process requires less information to be submitted and therefore carries significantly lower cost and planning risk.
