Critical Changes: Light Industrial (B1c) to Residential (C3) Class PA

Hounslow Council has deemed the conversion of light industrial to residential inappropriate, due to the effect this has had on employment sites and town centres within the borough. Council has claimed that they cannot afford to lose more employment land to residential. Therefore, a non-immediate direction to eliminate these rights has been created.

This direction was approved by the Council in December of 2016 and made in January of 2017. It will come into effect from 6 January 2018. If you are considering obtaining approval for this type of use, you are advised to do so now to avoid any disappointment.
