Planning Restrictions Will Be Relaxed For Certain Businesses During Covid-19 Crisis

Restaurant owners won't need to get planning permission to turn their businesses into takeaways.

Planning rules are being loosened to speed the response to the coronavirus pandemic - and help businesses adapt.

Businesses like supermarkets that have their opening hours limited by conditions to their planning permission will be allowed open longer too.

Local councils say keeping food and other essential supplies moving has to come first - and they "don't envisage" taking enforcement action over technical breaches during the emergency.
