What is mixed planning permission?

    I writing in relation to an old office building that we were told has a mixed planning status. Historically it would have had a shop downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. There was a bedroom there until about 2010 but it wasn't really used as a bedroom but it has been used as an office. Is this planning category a real classification and what does it mean? Is using the bedroom allowed provided it meets building regulations? Many thanks

    Mixed Planning is usually Mixed Use. so a mixture of residential, commercial, retail, office or any combination of the list.

    If its been in a state of unauthorised use, that's a different question.

    It either will have planning for its use or not.

    Are there any online (GIS) tools to check what the official planning status is? The building predates 1964

    Your local planning department will have online information available. You can check for planning applications now and in the past and you can look at the county and town development plans which will show you zoning categories etc.
