Change of use in Camberwell Green

In February 2017, City Planning successfully obtained planning permission for the change of use of a community use (public library) to financial and professional services (Class A 2). Despite an Article 4 Direction being placed on the town centre restricting A2 uses, City Planning were successfully able to argue that such a use contributed positively to the vitality and viability of Camberwell Town Centre. They were also able to argue that the loss of a Community use in this instance was acceptable in Planning Policy terms.
