Our client wished to replace a smaller property with a larger contemporary dwelling in a picturesque part of Rhoscolyn on Anglesey. However because the property had been built in the 40's, and there was no record of it ever having planning permission, the Council insisted upon an application for a Certificate of Lawful Use being made before they would entertain a replacement dwelling application. This was duly carried out with legal evidence submitted in support. A Lawful Use Certificate was eventually granted, and the replacement application then submitted. After due consideration the application was granted and now the client has permission to demolish the original small property and replace it with a sustainable and permanent residential property. The development permitted is fully in accordance with planning policy and the whole process was successfully negotiated by the team at Owen Devenport.
