Philip Kratz, a consultant at Birketts provides up-to-date guidance on permitted development rights. 

Permitted development rights allow development to be undertaken without the need to formally apply for planning permission, as planning permission is deemed to have been granted by statutory instrument. The rules are complex and problems of interpretation and application often arise. The rights are subject to detailed limits on matters such as size, height and appearance. 

This webinar provides up-to-date guidance for the property lawyer including:

  • The background to permitted development rights
  • What requires planning permission?
  • How to find out if an Article 4 Direction is in force
  • Listed buildings
  • The impact on property covenants
  • Converting retail to residential
  • Converting offices to residential
  • Redundant agricultural buildings
  • Start-ups and pop ups - where and how?
  • Breaches and enforcement action

About the speaker

Philip specialises in planning and development related law. He advises on planning-conditional acquisitions and related planning applications, planning appeals, listed building appeals, enforcement notice problems, negotiating planning obligations and all aspects of development law, including restrictive covenants, rights of way and compulsory purchase.

Before entering private practice in the 1990s, Philip worked in local government, becoming a chief officer with responsibility for all operational services.
