One question that boggles the minds of many people Is do I need planning permission to change to D1 usage. Before considering the permissions that may or may not be required for D1 usage it is important that you understand what this type of usage is.

 

What is D1 usage? D1 usage is a type of class that non residential buildings are put into. D1 only refers to certain institutions such as clinics, day care centers, public libraries, and museums just to name a few. To change uses that fall within the same class, for example if you were changing from an A class to another A class you would not need any type of planning permission to do so.

 

However, use class D1 non residential institutions will need to go through planning permissions. If you will be changing from one class to another class, there is a possibility that planning permissions will need to be given. The only time when planning permissions will not need to be given is if your change is considered to be a permitted development. In those types of situations, no planning permission will be required for the change.

 

Before asking do I need planning permission to change to D1 usage, it is imperative that you do some research if you are going to be changing classes when converting to D1 usage.
