Two certificate of lawfulness approved in Berkshire

Posted by Richard Cosker

One certificate was submitted to prove that a timber cabin used by a member of staff at the property was a caravan and ancillary to the property, thus not requiring planning permission. The second application was that a building in the ground of the property had been used for more than four years as an independent dwelling and was thus immune from enforcement action and now lawful.

Very detailed statement and supporting information, including sworn affidavits, were submitted as part of our case and the result if that both certificates have been issued by the council. The enforcement cases are therefore now closed.
