Lawful Development Certificate grants 1100sqft extension in Green Belt

Waverley Borough Council earlier this year refused a planning application for a modest 250sqft (24sqm) single storey rear extension, citing that the 5% increase to the 5,500sqft (500sqm) house was “too much”.

As a result, we advised our client that we could secure them an extension of over four times this through our detailed understanding and knowledge of the Technical Advice of the  Permitted Development Rights and this week the planners were left with no option but to approve our application for a Lawful Development Certificate for a single storey rear extension of 1,100sqft despite the property being in Green Belt.
