Application for a certificate of lawfulness under 4 year rule – new dwelling

Certificate of Lawfulness Issued on 17 August 2022

4 year rule

1 Worms Heath Cottages,
Limpsfield Road,

Council: Tandridge District Council

Sini approached us after the council has refused her application for a lawful development certificate to confirm that her home had been in use as a dwelling for at least 4 years (the 4 year rule) and was now immune from planning enforcement action.

We reviewed the evidence that had been submitted in support of the application, prepared a new application with new evidence, case law and planning argument and were delighted with the new application was approved and a certificate was granted.
