Does anybody understand the implications of the planning application for the change of use of the ground floor at the Longstone Court Development at the top end of Dover Street? [South side, beside AMEC building, SE1 4LB]

The ground floor has remained unoccupied since the site has been developed.

The proposal wording is: "Change of use of the ground floor from office (B1)/retail (A1) to mixed use office (B1)/retail(A1)/D1 (non-residential institution)"

Any insight much appreciated - any objections need to be placed by May 22

It looks like it just adds the ability to use the space for the following:

D1 Non-residential institutions - Clinics, health centres, crèches, day nurseries, day centres, schools, art galleries, museums, libraries, halls, places of worship, church halls, law court. Non residential education and training centres.

For more info, do a Google on the "Use Classes Order".

The other usess referred to are:

B1 - office use
A1 - standard retail (i.e. not including restaurants/cafes or estate agents/banks)

I hope this helps.
