WHAT ARE THE FORMALITIES INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF PROPERTY BUYING?

 

It is the use of an instrument such as the Use Classes Order, which requires everything to be slotted into a pre-defined category rather than be judged on its individual merits, that creates the difficulty of definition. It seems to us that if this system is to be used the disparate uses in Class D1 need to be distinguished, on the basis of their impact, rather than being lumped together as Option 3 suggests. We consider that the impact of nightclubs can differ greatly from that of either pubs or dance halls as normally understood and we therefore disagree strongly with the suggestion that they should be in the same class as either.

We consider that they should be in a class of their own, as suggested in Option 2. Their general character is very variable, but we would suggest that it would be more appropriate to put this class in Group A than Group D. The present scope of temporary uses seems to be too wide, and as this is a general problem it would not be appropriate to use Article 4 Directions to deal with it. We consider this to be intended for abnormal situations, to be cumbersome, and to be flawed because of the compensation provisions.

Option 2 looks like overkill, and likely to raise difficulties even for the village fete. Option 3 appears to us to control the things that cause most difficulty in terms of impact upon others, without imposing burdens where there is no significant problem. However, we are concerned that Farmers Markets would be affected by this option, so would prefer to see a way of distinguishing between bona fide farmers markets and other markets, and keeping permitted development rights for Farmers Markets.

Option 4 would in our view still be undesirable, Property Buyers Agent Reviews for the reasons set out in paragraph 8.14. Option 5 would be impossible to administer effectively, as would Option 6 which would also introduce problems of speed of response given that local people would certainly need to be consulted. The Town & Country Planning Association welcomes the opportunity to respond to the consultation paper: Compulsory Purchase and Compensation: Delivering a Fundamental Change. The TCPA is an NGO that campaigns inter alia for the reform of the UK planning system to promote public participation entering civil Engineering sector in the year 1974 with a futuristic vision in sight they’ve continued the focus on the same goal of getting ahead of times.
