Application for the Change of Use of a B1a office and a former holiday cottage through the removal of the restrictive condition, to create one single dwelling house with outbuilding

In order to maximise the development potential of a site, Bloomfields advised their client to review the restrictive holiday let condition that was imposed on the building.  Bloomfields subsequently sought planning permission for the removal of the previously imposed condition through a change of use application, in order to allow the unit to be occupied as an unrestricted residential unit.

The careful drafting of a robust supporting statement and demonstration that the condition was no longer reasonable or necessary in view of current national policy was crucial to this application’s success.
