Purpose of Report: The Government consultation contains proposed changes to two time-limited permitted development rights for covid recovery in the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 which were introduced to support businesses and the high street.
It covers the following areas:
1. Class BB of Part 4 permitting moveable structures within the curtilage of a pub, café, restaurant, or historic visitor attractions
2. Class BA of Part 12 permitting for markets to be held by or on behalf of local authorities.

The report will outline the questions asked by the Government and Officers responses to the questions.
The consultation closes on 14th November 2021.

The Executive Member will be asked to agree to submit the consultation response and detail any further comments.


Whilst we always aim to provide 28 days’ notice of a decision being made on this occasion this was not possible due to the limited timescales given by the consultation, there is a need to take the report to the October meeting to meet the deadline of 14 November.

ii.            That prior to the submission of City of York Council’s response, engagement on the section of the consultation on ‘Rights for markets by or on behalf of local authorities’ with the traders of the Shambles Market be undertaken.

iii.          That authority be delegated to the Head of Planning and Development Services to submit a response to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ consultation on Supporting defence infrastructure and the future of time limited permitted development rights.


Reason: To allow a submission to be made to the consultation in a timely manner and allowing the Council to make representations in respect of the proposed changes to permitted development rights.
