Abstract

This document contains 30 examples of buildings converted to residential use through permitted development rights. 29 of the buildings have been converted from office to residential use, and one is an example of light industrial to residential change of use. The schemes were suggested to the TCPA and the researchers through the TCPA’s Healthy Homes campaign. The 30 buildings reviewed do not provide a comprehensive or systematic review of all the schemes typical in any particular area, but rather have been provided as exemplars of the types of schemes that are possible through permitted development rights. For each suggested building suggested, the UCL research team conducted a site visit to see if the building had indeed been converted to residential use following the submission of a prior notification and any notable features of the building’s location. These were conducted in summer 2019. A detailed desk analysis was then conducted to look at some common measures of residential quality for each scheme: compliance with national space standards, the mixture of unit types, the provision of amenity space, access to daylight, and location in relation to green or open space. None of these issues can be considered through a prior approval process. This document overviews the detailed findings for each building, before an overall summary of findings is provided.
