A quirk in planning policy means that erecting outbuildings to dwellings in the Green Belt can often be difficult. This case was made even more difficult by a planning condition attached to a new housing development that specifically removed permitted development rights. The Council had refused permission for our client's new home office building at the end of their garden. We put the case in what was a surprisingly complex appeal, given the small scale, and the appeal was allowed with the Inspector accepting our interpretation of Green Belt policy rather than the Council's case.
Client: private householder
