Re: Re: When can you carry out Exempted Dev?
My experience has been its generally ok, ….. until / unless someone objects.
strictly speaking an extension cannot be constructed at the same time as the dwelling itself.
we have clients who built a three dwelling scheme, each prospective owner requested ‘extensions’ to be built, ….they were, at the same time as the dwellings…. awkward interfering neighbours called in enforcement officer of council who put enforcement notice on the works. in his view the ‘extensions’ wernt extensions as they were constructed at teh same time. Retention was applied for and granted by the council, hence awkward neighbour currently has the decision appealed to the bord. Prospective owners now waiting over 7 months to move in….
I have read, on another website, of a person who recieved word on paper from their local authority that it was ok to build ‘exempted extension’ at the same time as dwelling… perhaps request this???
