    Sui Generis planning?

    Does anyone know whether you are permitted to change ause of a building that is Sui Generis to something else categorised as Sui Generis without needing planning permission? In the same way as something else in say in  C class could be changed into something else in the same class without planning permission.

    As far as I'm aware, there is no permitted development within Sui Generis usage class.

    Any chamges require planning permission.

    A good teacher must know the rules; a good pupil, the exceptions.

    Good question - you'd have guessed that with the big bucket of other categories - if they wanted sui-genaris split up any more they would have already done so !

    DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.

    The Sui is only granted for the specific description, afaik. So for example even if you wanted to increase an 8 tenant HMO to 9 tenants, I believe you should ask. Otherwise you could in principle change that 8 tenant HMO to 24 tenants based on the same Sui. If it was on 2 floors only, prior to the new licensing regs, there would have been no other check!
