BCP Council (Poole area): Matt is pleased to have recently secured retrospective planning permission for the sub-division and conversion of a former commercial take-away premises and rear stores into a flexible tanning salon/takeaway use (both Sui Generis) at the front with residential studio flat at the rear.

We would never advise anyone to carry out a change of use or operational development without first checking whether planning permission is required and if so, not before securing the necessary consents. But if you do find yourself in the situation where you have unknowingly carried out an unlawful development which requires regularising, contact Pure Town Planning and we’d be happy to provide advice and assistance where appropriate.
