I'm sure that to get permission for a change of use the owners would need to provide evidence to support their case, and a unit empty for many years helps with this. The root cause of the empty unit - high rent - is unimportant.
Reckon this helps not just with converting to offices but also with switching to food retail too.
Anyway, I'm glad they decided to keep the estate agents as there just isn't enough choice around here these days!
