Our clients required additional annexe living accommodation to house elderly parents. Having previously and substantially extended their property it was unlikely that the Council would grant approval for additional extensions.

We sought clarification from the Council that a detached annexe structure, providing the necessary accommodation, would be lawful without seeking planning approval. Following protracted negotiations and discussions with the Council, which included seeking additional assistance from a specialist Barrister, we obtained confirmation that a detached structure would be acceptable, the siting was within the residential curtilage, and the proposed use of that structure would not constitute a material change of use of the land and would be incidental to the main dwelling house.
