2020 GPDO Update 1
The first update to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (GPDO) was made on 23rd March 2020 – or GPDO Update 1 as we will refer to it on Planning Geek.
This was the first amendment in direct response to the COVID-19 or Coronavirus epidemic which was taking hold in the UK.
Only one change was made and this was a new Class DA within Part 4 which is Temporary uses of buildings or land. This allows for restaurants and cafes, drinking establishments and drinking establishments with expanded food provision to temporarily provide takeaway food. This runs from 24th March 2020 until 23rd March 2021.
