Government announces changes to planning rules to protect the venues of cultural institutions


The government announces changes to the planning system in order to protect theatres, concert halls and live music performance venues from being redeveloped or demolished. Councils now have to take into account the temporary impact of COVID-19 'when considering permission for change of use, redevelopment or demolition of a theatre, concert hall or live music performance venue'.
