To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of extending temporary permitted development rights for pop-up campsites to summer 2022.

To provide greater flexibility during coronavirus restrictions, a permitted development right was introduced to provide additional days for the temporary use of land, including camping.

This has now expired. However, the original right remains, allowing for the temporary use of land for up to 28 days per calendar year.
