New residential annex including art studio and ancillary residential accommodation.
Following an initial planning appraisal of the site it was decided when considering the proposed use and the applicants needs that a formal planning application would be submitted to apply for a residential annex for the applicants aging father to allow for a level of independent living and an art studio where both the father and daughter could use. The proposal will utilise a plastic polymer flat roof and mirror the adjacent built form to blend seamlessly into the street scene whilst augmenting the existing accommodation at the property.
Can I Use an Outbuilding as an Annex?
Do remember, it is not lawful to build an outbuilding for use as an annex under PD. Subject to various simple criteria, new outbuildings can be built in your garden for just about any purpose incidental to the use of your house as a single home, such as a home office, gym or workshop — but not for self-contained residential accommodation. You will need planning permission if an outbuilding is to be specifically built for the purposes of being an annex.
