Kings Norton Simplified Planning Zone

If you own or run a business from a property in Kings Norton Business Centre, or are interested in carrying out development there, you could benefit from new planning rules for the area.

The Kings Norton Simplified Planning Zone is an area in which planning permission is granted in advance for certain types of development. Provided your proposed development complies with the SPZ scheme, there would be no need to obtain planning permission in the normal way.

It is hoped this will help attract new investment and job opportunities to the area and encourage greater business confidence.

The SPZ scheme is in operation for ten years ending on 4th October 2017.
