Planning permission deadlines will be extended by the Government under new measures to boost the building of thousands of new homes after three months of restrictions.
Planning approvals with an expiry date between the start of lockdown in March and the end of this year will be extended to 1 April 2021.
We are awaiting detailed guidance on what this means for us. The Business and Planning Act 2020 which will temporarily modify the Town and County Planning Act 1990 and the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 is currently going through Government approval.
