Change of use of former ancillary residential building to a separate dwelling house

In order to maximise the development potential of a residential property, Bloomfields advised their client to review the restrictive condition that was imposed on an ancillary building at the site.  Bloomfields subsequently sought full planning permission for the change of use to allow the unit to be occupied as an unrestricted residential unit.

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