Following public consultation at the end of 2009/early 2010 on amendments to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 and the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007, the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) Minister Andrew Stunell has now confirmed that the DCLG has laid before Parliament Statutory Instruments to amend the Order.

The amendments proposed include:
 
 
  • allowing for the installation of electrical outlets for recharging electric vehicles in off-street public and private car parks, and amendments to clarify that local authorities can install on-street charging points for electric vehicles as permitted development
  • deemed advertisement consent for installers of charging points and energy suppliers to display their name plates on the charging points
  • new permitted development rights for householders to install small scale domestic wind turbines and air source heat pumps on their premises, subject to strict limitations and conditions including a maximum noise limit of 42dB LAeq,5mins, with the noise levels for both technologies reviewed one year after these measures come into force
Subject to the views of Parliament the provisions relating to electric vehicle charging points will come into force on 1 October 2011. Those relating to micro wind turbines and air source heat pumps will come into force on 1 December 2011.
