Planning ApprovalOn Monday, 28 June 2021 at 15:29
We have recently obtained planning permission for an annex at a new build property in Eaton, Congleton, Cheshire. The detached annex houses a home gym and art studio and sits on the land adjacent to the main house which we previously designed. The original permission was for conversion of an existing pool house into a separate dwelling, which was followed by careful architectural design for a new detached 4 bedroom property in a different location.
Following completion of the build, we were appointed to obtain planning permission for the detached annex, at which point the local planning authority questioned the use of the proposed land where the annex was to be located. Therefore, we supplemented the application with a certificate of existing lawful use to demonstrate the land was garden use associated with the main house.
