Newsletter | March 2015 - drawingandplanning.com Having trouble reading this? View it in your browser. New Hotel in Golders Green - Approved DAP are delighted to announce that plans for a Hotel (C1) in the heart of Golders Green, have been approved. The scheme will see the iconic Solly’s Building, which has remained partly derelict since a devastating fire in 2007, finally receive a new lease of life.   The approved Hotel will also consist of a new Restaurant (A3) on the ground floor adjacent to the hotel entrance. The Hotel will generate new jobs and meet the demand for budget hotel accommodation in an underprovided area. Room rates are projected to be between £40-£80 per night. Cleaning, laundry and catering services will all be outsourced, thereby contributing to the local economy.   The team at DAP worked closely with the planners at Barnet Council, who supported the principle of C1 use during our pre-application negotiations and subsequent applications. Barnet Council recently experienced a major overhaul of their planning department when it was outsourced to RE Ltd., a joint venture between Capita and Barnet Council. In our experience, this new venture is proving to be a major success. Planning applications are processed more efficiently and target determination dates are generally achieved.   The successful scheme is the culmination of months of tireless effort on the part of the team at DAP. Our Architects and Planners took great pleasure in carrying this most exciting hotel scheme through the planning process.   Our client, the freeholder of 146-150 Golders Green Road NW11, is delighted with the outcome and we look forward to working with them again on their next venture. We have been advised that the site is now FOR SALE with the benefit of planning permission so if you wish to own and operate a hotel in the heart of Golders Green, please be in touch. Likewise, if you own a site and would like independent expert advice on the scope for development, whether residential or commercial, please be in touch.     Mercham House 25-27 The Burroughs, Hendon, London, NW4 4AR P: 020 8202 3665 www.drawingandplanning.com Copyright © 2015 DAP Group.

Newsletter | February 2015 - drawingandplanning.com Having trouble reading this? View it in your browser. GRANTED : AEGON HOUSE, LONDON   Another successfull application by the DAP team !   We are delighted to tell our customers about a successful change of usage from office to residential. The question on all developers mind is whether prior approval for B1 - C3 will be extended.   In 2014 the Department for Communities and Local Government unveiled plans to make this temporary permitted development (PD) permanent. The temporary permitted development is due to expire on 30th May 2016.   DAP have being discussing prior approval with many colleagues and clients. The big question will be answered by the summer 2015. So far many London councils have removed these PD rights through article 4, a policy which allows rights to be removed locally.   Our estate agent partners have indicated that competition has risen drastically in the commercial B1 / office space market. Will it soon be too expensive for companies to operate out of offices? At DAP we can see a trend of large organizations moving to UK cities where rents and labour are lower, we can only see this trend continuing!   Eric Pickles has shown with recent large planning decisions that he means business. The economy is growing and specifically the real estate market is growing. Investors are now happy with 3% yield in London and 6% yield outside London. Will Eric still be in his seat after the elections? We predict an announcement about prior approval will be made following the elections in the UK   We are recruiting... Senior Architect :- Team B Senior Architect - Must have previous experience working on UK planning applications. Ex-Council Town Planner :- Many of you may be thinking it’s time to leave the council and join the private practice world.

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.
