The London ' studio ' flat smaller than a family hatchback : Croydon developer is granted permission to build 90 sq ft home . Cramped spaces passed by Croydon council last year under new planning rules. Experts describe it as the smallest allowed under 'permitted development' rules.

Plans for the two cramped apartments in Purley, south London, showed spaces of just 90sq ft and 97sq ft passed by Croydon council last year.

The move has been described by experts as the smallest allowed under 'permitted development' rules and is just two thirds the size of most parking spaces.

It comes after landlords were found to be exploiting 'permitted development' rights to earn a fortune from turning offices into numerous small flats.

Board investigates plane crash that killed 18-year-old pilot

Board investigates plane crash that killed 18-year-old pilot The National Transportation Safety Board is checking maintenance records and gathering other information about a single-engine airplane that crashed in northern Mississippi and killed the 18-year-old pilot. Investigator Ed Malinowski says Monday the board's final report could take months. The Cessna 172 belonged to the Mississippi Civil Air Patrol, and student pilot Lake Little of Starkville was a cadet master sergeant. She took off Saturday from Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Columbus. A flight plan showed she was supposed to go Oxford and return to Columbus. The crash happened on the Ole Miss Golf Course, near Oxford-University Airport.

This small block next to the A12 packs in 60 studios . Yet converting offices into tiny living spaces doesn’t even need planning permission . The building looked very shabby, and the small area of outdoor space was strewn with rubbish including large amounts of broken glass.

A studio flat in London has to be 400sq ft but is not factored in for co-living arrangements such as the ones proposed in Purley.

The developers do not face the usual scrutiny under 'permitted development' rights, there are no restrictions on the size of the flats and there are few ways of turning down applications, according to the Times.

Construction on the Purley flats has not yet started, but they are among other plans for the building which include a two-bed ground floor apartment which itself only measures 240sq ft.

Despite this being a third of the size of a flat under normal planning permission, the building's owner Andrew Weinstein has other plans for a 300sq ft three-bedroom space and a 280sq ft two-bed on the first floor.

NZ acting PM rubbishes Australia's criminal deportation laws as 'ridiculous' New Zealand's acting Prime Minister has rubbished Australia's criminal deportation as 'ridiculous'. Winston Peters will hold talks with Australia's foreign minister Marise Payne on her visit to New Zealand regarding the contentious policy - which sees New Zealand nationals who commit crime in Australia, sent back home. The New Zealand government is determined to change the policy, with NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern arguing many of the criminals have lived in Australia all their lives and have little or no remaining ties to the country.

It also emerged that developers the Cowell Group filed plans for a warehouse to be made into a 107-flat block in Barnet, north London, but with 56 not having an outwards-facing window.

The studios would fit a bed, table, kitchen and small bathroom into a 140sq ft area, and 56 of the homes would look inside the building to an atrium, with seven trees below.

Even the apartments that face outwards have just one window, with some flats expected to share a corridor with a row of offices, under the proposals by Adrian Levy and Nicholas Cowell, as well as rival developer Dandi Living.

New auction data a mixed bag for Aussie property market

The move comes despite Mr Cowell previously saying: 'If you convert a horrible office building to flats then you end up with flats in a horrible office building.'

Ms Park added: 'Of the dozens of examples I've come across, these are probably the worst, particularly the Barnet scheme.'

But Ali Reza Ravenshad from Dandi Living claimed his company was not going to build the squat flats and was 'playing the planning game'.

More windows would be added to the outside of the building after getting normal planning permission through a second application, he said.

These were said to be rooms of around 260sq ft, aimed at low income renters who would still get a window.

Complaints flooded in against the flats, with locals saying the cramped spaces could lead to mental health problems for occupants.

Little-known property trick for Perth homeowners

Little-known property trick for Perth homeowners Perth homeowners living on corner blocks could be sitting on a wealth of extra value thanks to a little-known property trick. The state government relaxed WA's sub-division laws almost two years ago to increase density and cater for a projected population of 3.5 million people by 2050. The changes to residential design codes, or R-Codes, mean smaller corner lots in any suburb can be split up and councils will consider calving them into plots beyond standard limits.

The plans have not been approved yet, but Barnett council can only reject them if they find environmental problems such as flooding, transport or noise.

Mr Weinstein did not reply to requests for comment from the Times and could not be reached by MailOnline.

The Cowell Group and Dandi Living said they 'take great pride in their track record for delivering high end, aesthetic and affordable housing'.

'[The] development is at an early stage of a complex planning process, and our intention is to build a co-living scheme of the highest quality.'

Croydon council said environmental problems can affect planning applications, but the size of the rooms cannot be brought into question.

It comes after a spate of incidents where landlords and agencies have offered tiny flats for huge prices to profit from the London housing bubble.

A recent advert for a £572-a-month studio flat left potential tenants baffled as it didn't appear to have a door.

The advert, posted on SpareRoom drew comparisons to fictional land Narnia due to its unusual opening where it appears a wardrobe hides the entrance.

The flat was advertised as having 'bright neutral decor throughout' by estate agents Annandvilla even though tenants could step from their bed to the shower and toilet.

Another advert had to be pulled after estate agents received 'abusive phone calls' from members of the public for its self-contained flat.

The photos of the staggering £737-per-month room in Kings Cross show a bed, a dining table and chair, a wardrobe, kitchen sink and hob all crammed together.

Landlord Andrew Panayi, 67, told The Evening Standard the photos 'didn't do justice' to the flat.

At Newbury House in Ilford, each flat in the block measures 12ft by 12ft after it was converted from former office space.

These office to residential conversions do not require planning permission and there is growing concerns about their standards of living.

Leading architect Julia Park saws Newbury House is 'one of the worst examples' she has ever encountered and 'no one should live like this'.

She told the Architects' Journal: 'I felt genuine despair when I opened the drawings of Newbury House.

Realising that an architect had been involved was an added disappointment.'

Sydney Sugarcube apartment tower abandoned after toxic land concerns.
A resident of an inner-city Sydney apartment tower built and then abandoned over toxic land concerns says he has "no power" after buying a $1 million home. Nick Rehac, who is on a pension, bought his home in the $46.5 million "Sugarcube" apartment development in the inner-west suburb of Erskineville more than a year ago. But he is yet to live in his home, after the City of Sydney refused to allow owners to move in over concerns the developer has not clean up toxic land underneath it. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.
