DLP Planning is pleased to have secured a Lawful Development Certificate for our client’s property in the London Borough of Lambeth. The property had been converted from a single-family dwelling house into flats prior to our client’s acquisition.
For our client to further develop the site for additional dwellings this ‘unauthorised use’ had to be regularised before we could proceed. Following discussions with the Council, the DLP team prepared an application for a Lawful Development Certificate including a detailed Supporting Statement, setting out evidence for the Council that the use of the building as self-contained flats had been in continuous existence for four or more years.
The Council accepted our arguments and granted the Certificate accordingly.
