Accommodation Through Deregulation: Understanding the Social Impacts of Office-to-Residential Permitted Development in Newcastle upon Tyne
Mr Jacob George
(Newcastle University, School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape)
This research investigated the much-debated permitted development right for office-to-residential conversions, focusing uniquely on its social impacts in a city in northern England. The dissertation used two case studies, interviews, a questionnaire and secondary data analysis to understand how widespread the practice of office conversion is in Newcastle, and how the resulting housing impacts upon the social fabric of its locality. Recommendations are made for improving the rigour of the prior approval process for office conversions, and for taking a more regional approach to office-to-residential permitted development.
