Building Without Bureaucracy: Finn Williams and David Knight

Tuesday 21 September 2010 5.30pm

A two way talk 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 will present recent projects which explore and exploit Permitted Development rules.

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