Building Without Bureaucracy: A Talk by Finn Williams and David Knight, Tuesday 21 September 2010

A two way talk given on The Skyroom about Permitted Development: ‘the planning permission we already have’.

Though apparently at the humble end of the planning system, recent changes to Permitted Development rights are a treasure trove of architectural potential. The new breed of lean-tos, loft conversions, sheds and summerhouses they allow could have far-reaching and surprising consequences for UK towns and countryside. Finn Williams and David Knight presented recent projects which explored and exploited Permitted Development rules.

Chaired by Michael Tsoukaris, Group Manager for Design and Conservation, Regeneration & Neighbourhoods and Development Management, London Borough of Southwark
