Re: Re: When can you carry out Exempted Dev?
Obviously from the replies there is no real clear-cut answer to my question!
My view would be that the development granted permission should be ‘substantially complete’ prior to commencing the construction of the exempted developmnet extension. What I mean by ‘substantially complete’ is that the external envelope is watertight – roof complete, windows and external doors in, external plastering/finishes complete, etc. – but the house not necessarily be occupied.
Would anybody agree with this view?
My wife suggested ringing the Council to ask the question – I said I could ask the question but there are two hopes of getting an answer that doesn’t involve the words ‘apply for planning permission’!
