For what class/classes of use does your property have planning permission?

I imagine that you mean Use Class C1.
However, use for AST lettings is "Dwellinghouse" Use Class C3 if it involves letting (whether or not as a sole/main residence) to/for:
a. a single person;
b. any number of people living as a family; or
c. not more than six unrelated people living together as single household.

Note that TCPA definition of HMO is entirely different from Housing Act 2004's definition.
