The legislation will look to ensure that all new dwellings built under permitted development rights provide their occupants with adequate natural light. The Government have also proposed to allow the construction of up to two additional storeys on existing residential homes and apartment blocks built after July 1948. This is to enable the creation of additional residential units without the need to obtain planning permission. Based on the amendments to Permitted Development legislation published by Government.
From 1 August 2020, several of the current prior approval procedures for the creation of dwellinghouses via changes of use will request additional information in regard to the “provision of adequate natural light to all habitable rooms”.
As part of this change, a Prior Approval application will be required showing a floor plan “indicating the dimensions and proposed use of each room, the position and dimensions of windows, doors and walls, and the elevations of the dwellinghouses”. 4D Planning can provide the architectural drawings for these type of applications.
