Permitted Development Rights

Join us in opposing the new laws on Permitted Development Rights (PDR) as being detrimental to meeting underlying climate targets.

ACAN wants the Government to immediately stop the changes from coming into force on 31 August 2020 without enough scrutiny and before amendment of the new Planning Laws. We've written an open letter to Robert Jenrick spelling out the severe environmental impacts of Government’s proposals to extend PDRs.

We invite all industry professionals and members of the public to sign our open letter and to take part in the campaign to stop the new changes from coming into force at the end of August 2020.

Here's how you can help:

 

Selected extracts from our open letter to the Housing Secretary

To show your support, please sign the open letter below

Dear Secretary of State.
The Rt Hon Robert Jenrick, MP.

 

We are writing to you regarding the current proposed changes to Permitted Development Rights (PDR) that are coming into force at the end of August 2020. We are incredibly concerned that these changes will be detrimental to meeting underlying climate targets. We demand the Government to immediately stop the changes from coming into force on 31 August 2020, without enough scrutiny and before amendment of the current Building Regulations and Planning Laws.

 

(Letter continues...)

We urgently require the government to consider our proposals above to prioritise the amendment of current national, regional and local policies and regulations. We urge you to reconsider the current PDR proposals and stop the changes from coming into force at the end of August 2020 to adhere to meeting the UK’s carbon emissions targets.
 

We would welcome the opportunity to meet and engage in a constructive dialogue about our concerns.

 

Yours Sincerely,
 

Architects Climate Action Network
