Established use certificate
Established use certificates are no longer granted, having been replaced by a certificate of lawfulness of existing use or development (CLEUD) in 1992.
Existing established use certificates remain valid and unchanged, although they are not considered to have been made under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. The essential difference is that established use certificates could provide immunity from enforcement action, but were not evidence that the development was lawful.
