Changes have been introduced to the planning use classes which classify the different uses of property in England, which took effect as of September 1. We have produced a webinar to set out what you need to know about the changes.

Our webinar will give you a practical overview of the changes, covering:

  • Getting to know the new use classes
  • New ‘sui generis’ uses
  • The impact of the changes
  • The effect of the changes on leases, both new and existing

To access the on-demand webinar, please contact Webinar Requests. Take a look at the resources section for a quick reference guide to the use class changes.

Our planning counsel and speaker on this webinar, Julia Berry, has also recently been published in The Planner, giving an update on the CIL. You can read the article at
