Healthier high streets and an end to trojan telephone boxes

Sustain welcomes initiatives announced in the Spring Statement which will contribute toward healthier high streets.

Telephone kiosks will no longer masquerade as advertising structures without the need for planning permission and it will be easier for hot food takeaway premises to change to other uses.

The Secretary of State for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government made a written ministerial statement on 13 March announcing planning reforms likely “in the Spring”. These include:

  • removing the permitted development right and associated advertising deemed consent in respect of new telephone kiosks;
  • allowing hot food takeaways to change use to an office or to residential use.
