The planning regulations allows for up to 6 people to share a house where an element of care is provided. If the number increases above 6 then planning permission will be required. Such applications can be submitted as a certificate of lawfulness rather than as a full planning application. Some Councils view these applications with a great deal of suspicion, therefore the presentation of the application and supporting documentation is critical to its success.
We have handled a number of successful applications all over the country, saving our clients a great deal of trouble and frustration.
