Table of GPDO changes – where they are allowed

You can use the table below to quickly see which prior approval changes might be available to you in different settings within England. Our other table lists the possible changes via use class.

An Article 4 could in theory prevent any of these from happening, but in reality the vast majority aim prevent HMOs or Office to Residential Conversions. 

Click on the various links for more detailed articles. If you are unsure as to what the different A1, C3 or D2 mean, check out our Use Classes page. 

This page was last updated on 19th May 2020 to reflect the latest changes to the GPDO.
