Changes to planning rules in England will make it easier for new free schools to open in offices, hotels and shops from this summer, the government has confirmed.
Free schools are funded by central government but can be set up by various groups, including charities, parents and businesses, where they can show a need for a new school. They cannot be run for profit.
There are about 80 free schools open in England now, with another 100 planned to open in September.
