Use Class A5 - Hot food takeaways

What is A5 Usage? Do I need Planning Permission to change to A5 Usage?

A5 is use for:

The sale of hot food for consumption off the premises.

i.e. premises where the primary purpose is the sale of hot food to take away

 Permitted Change from A5 Use Class

Properties that are designated as A5 planning usage can be changed to A1 Shops, A2 Financial and Professional Services or A3 Restaurant, providing that the application is of a satisfactory standard. Changes to other uses are certainly possible but will require substantial work to gain approval.

Matters To Consider when Changing to A5 Use Class

An application  to change the use of a property to A5 to be used as a hot food-take away is likely to face several challenges.

The key obstacles with such applications are:

  • justifying the increase in noise
  • satisfying criteria for the safe extraction of fumes
  • opening hours
  • risk of anti-social behaviour
