In 2020 and then 2021, Government extended the time period to permit the use of land for ‘pop up’ campsites. Normally land can be used for up to 28 days per year without planning permission. This went up to 56 days in 2021 to assist economic growth for businesses in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. These time periods are cumulative. The 56-day extended permitted period ends on 31 December 2021.  The extra days are not proposed to extend into 2022.

The Government consulted on whether certain "permitted development" rights should be permanent. The consultation ended on 14 November 2021.
