MAT & Academy Planning Applications
Specialists in planning regulations
As set out in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, a planning application may be required for the change of use of an existing building or land, for the alternation or refurbishment of a building as well as for the construction of a new building.
However, it is not always clear cut with permitted development rights allowing specified developments to proceed without the need for a full planning application. For example, for minor operational works that would not exceed 25% of the existing floor space.
At Surveyors to Education (S2e) we have a specialist knowledge of academy planning regulations and understand what development is permitted and what will require planning permission across the following areas:
- Buildings and structures
- Gates, fences and walls
- Car parks
- Listed buildings
- Change of use
