Above the shop

Shopkeepers who want to convert the storage space above their shop into more than one flat are to be allowed to do it without asking for planning permission. The Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles, is hoping that a relaxation of the rules will ease the housing shortage and help bring a bit more life into some of the country's high streets, which become deserted when the shops close.
