We're trying to save our local pub from development. The use class was changed from A4 (pub with ancillary accommodation) to A1 (retail) under permitted development. I'm aware that the law has since change to disallow this going forwards but this was before the change in the law. At the moment the ground floor is empty and the two flats on the first floor are still occupied.

My question is whether that change of use was actually correct, given that there are two flats on the first floor. Shouldn't it have been changed to "mixed use" and therefore required planning permission?

Thanks to anyone who can help, particularly qualified planning professionals....

However, we're wondering if this was actually lawful change
