Application for provision of a guest suite

Thompson Planning Ltd alongside Link Architectural were instructed to assist in securing permission for a one bed unit attached to a Public House in East Hertfordshire. The works had been completed and the unit was leased when the Council Enforcement Team contacted our client regarding a Planning Breach. The building was authorised for use as a shop, but since constructed had never been used.

With no permitted development rights, an Enforcement Notice possible and a room that did not meet the National Space Standards, had no parking and was on Green Belt this was a challenge. By carefully considering use classes, the guest suite was approved as an associated use, subject to conditions on occupancy and approved within eight weeks, contrary to the view of the Enforcement Officer.
