'Sui Generis' cinemas, concert halls and dance halls.

The changes to the Use Classes Order brought about by the Business and Planning Act 2020 have reclassified cinemas, live performance venues and dance halls as 'sui generis', that is, outside any formal use class.  There are no permitted development rights, and planning permission would be required to change any of these uses.
