IT MIGHT HELP TO RELEASE SOME EQUITY SO THAT YOUR INVESTMENT RETURNS TO BEING COMMERCIALLY VIABLE.
By obtaining planning permission for a new residential dwelling within the curtilage of your property or by developing under-used rooms or buildings could release much-needed equity to reinvest in the pub or to reduce your borrowings.
This particularly applies if you purchased at the peak of the market since when income may have fallen pro rata and your investment has consequently declined in market value.
Perhaps there is sufficient evidence to apply for a partial or complete Change of Use. Please click through to the Owners' Page for fuller details regarding Change of Use.
CHANGING THE USE OF YOUR PUB ENTIRELY MAY BE AN OPTION BUT DO YOU TICK ALL THE BOXES?
- In order to change the planning use class (A4) of your pub you must obtain planning consent from your local authority
- National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the Local Authority's Core Strategy and Local Plan resist proposals which result in the loss of a community facility
- Since April 2015 there are no longer permitted development rights for most public houses - please telephone for full details
- It is vital to commission a professional to provide you with a Viability, Marketing Report and Business Appraisal in a format which will benefit the planning application and convince the planners that the pub has become defunct

Change-of-Use is a sensitive subject for many planning committees and the initial reaction is for them to refuse such applications. Planners have been influenced by well-meaning groups and campaigners NOT to close public houses.
We do not condone closing pubs which are flourishing or have been purposely neglected so as to run the business down as a way of claiming it to be non-viable. Change of Use will turn away such an instruction almost as often as accepting one.
