Class G Opportunities! What you need to know about Statutory Instrument 814. With Linda Wright!

Statutory Instrument 814 updates Class G which condemned permitted development to create 2 flats above a retail space to the bin. New Super Class G is a prior approval to create 2 flats above a Use class E commercial space.

As well as detailing the opportunities we bust a few myths about what you can and can’t do under the New Class G changes.

How Windsor and Maidenhead Council rejected a class G planning application based on the fact a corridor was required to gain access to the flats. Stay tuned – we will release a video on this appeal and the outcome.

We answer questions such as
– Can you create flats on the ground floor?
