Temporary options for empty commercial space - "meanwhile uses"

This CLG story is an update to remind people of the Government's intention to review the processes for changing the uses of property, particularly on a temporary basis.

This article and its associated footnotes provide a good overview of where the process of reviewing the system has got to.
