The Local Development Order came into effect on the 13th August 2015 and it will remain in operation for three years from the date of commencement.
The document is designed to simplify the planning process and it is hoped that this will help encourage new businesses to locate in the area and existing businesses to expand their operations. It allows development falling into specific employment use classes to be undertaken without the need for planning permission.
The order also includes a map which identifies the designated areas to which the order will apply.
