Offices to become houses for sale in Staffordshire?

Offices to become houses for sale in Staffordshire?

The supply of property for sale in Staffordshire could soon receive a boost as a result of plans to regenerate dormant office buildings.

Communities secretary Eric Pickles has announced plans for the red tape surrounding the transition from a commercial to a residential property to be scrapped.

The Department for Communities and Local Government has proposed to scrap the requirement for planning permission in these instances so dormant offices can be transformed into much needed houses and flats for sale in Staffordshire.

Regenerating commercial buildings in the county would complement Staffordshire County Council's work to rejuvenate the iconic Ferry Bridge across the River Trent.

A new walkway and handrails are currently being fitted to improve the landmark.

Across the UK, Mr Pickle's plans could see 250,000 new properties delivered, with potential for more property for sale in Staffordshire.

He said he wanted to "unshackle" developers from bureaucratic planning measures to jumpstart the UK housing supply.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800499176-ADNFCR
