Content updates: new minimum space standards, April 2021

by on March 30, 2021

Legislative updates relevant to prior approval applications for new dwellinghouses (including through change of use) are coming into force from 6 April 2021 and apply to any such application submitted from that point onwards.

Permitted development legislation has been amended in relation to space standards, and specifies that any new dwellinghouse will only be eligible for permitted development rights if it has a gross internal floor area of at least 37 square metres, and complies with the nationally described space standard.

From 6 April 2021, our content within the application system and our fillable PDF forms will be updated to reflect the amended legislation.

    I’ve read your article and links to government information but cannot find anything on ‘new minimum space standards’ except that PD will now have to fall in line with EXISTING space standards. If they have changed could you please summarise those changes.
