The client constructed an office in their rear garden believing it was allowed through permitted development rights. However, in August 2021, the client applied for a certificate of lawful use for the outbuilding, which was rejected on the grounds that it has an overhanging covered veranda, which exceeded the permitted floor area. The client therefore asked Lanpro to help them to secure planning permission for the office.
After carefully considering how the office accords with Cambridge City Council’s planning policies, Lanpro submitted a retrospective planning application and in November 2021, the office received planning permission.
