Hayston Developments & Planning Ltd are pleased to announce that they have won an appeal on behalf of Mr & Mrs Jones of Llys-Y-Gof, Wiston. Mr and Mrs Jones had previously applied for planning permission to build an annex to their property as their multi-generational family grows. Mr & Mrs Jones Sr intended to move into this annex, which would have a small kitchen and bathroom, as Mr & Mrs Jones Jr need more room in the main house for their growing family. The application was originally denied, with PCC arguing they had been given insufficient personal justification and that the annex was too large and could potentially be used as a separate dwelling.
At appeal, the Inspector found that the personal justification was adequate (and Mrs Jones Sr needs a special mention here, as she gave a brilliantly impassioned plea for the annex) and that PCC did not require any more information than they had been given. The Inspector agreed that the annex was large, but that it was justified by the needs of the family. The Inspector also stated that a simple planning condition could be imposed to allay the fears that the annex could one day be used as an independent dwelling. The appeal was allowed, with this condition, and Mr & Mrs Jones are looking forward to commencing the work on their home.
