Reduced-rating the conversion of premises to a different residential use: building control and planning consent

A conversion is only a qualifying conversion if any statutory planning consent and statutory building control approval that may be needed for the conversion has been granted.

A conversion that doesn’t need statutory planning consent or building control approval is not affected by this provision.
