NEW BATHROOOM EXTENSION APPROVED
The Lyde, Bromlow, Shropshire.
Certificate of Lawfulness Planning Application submitted and approved for the creation of a new family bathroom in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Following an initial consultation with the applicants En-Plan drafted a scheme that was subsequently submitted to and approved by Shropshire County Council for the creation of a new family bathroom as the family were struggling with the existing set up in the historic property. The issue faced by growing modern families in older [properties tends to be one of space and by utilising the permitted development rights afforded to householders by the General Permitted Development Order 1995 (as amended). Bu utilising these rights you can bypass design judgements that the Local Planning Authority will make as part of any Planning Application and you can keep the project costs down by this course of action.
In this instance the applicants elected to apply for Certificate of Lawfulness which acts as a legal judgement for the proposed extension that can be completed under the applicant's permitted development rights as a householder. This Certificate gives the applicant the certainty that the proposed extension can go ahead without any worries over any Planning Enforcement issues that may arise. The Certificate can also be used as a de-facto planning approval when the owners look to sell the property and be provided to the buyers solicitors to ensure they are happy that the development is lawful. This along with A Building Regulations Completion Certificate will ensure a smooth sale and avoid the need of costly indemnity policies and the time delay that these cause.
