Granny Annexe in Maldon

Planning approval for a 91sqm Granny Annexe in Maldon

Our client needed a Granny annexe in Maldon for their elderly parents with ongoing health issues. The annexe needed to have two bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms and an open-plan living area to accommodate a wheelchair.

The Requirement

Typically, councils do not approve annexes with more than one bedroom. However, our planner obtained doctors’ letters and medical evidence to support the need for an extra bedroom.  Only this would allow for the best possible care for our client’s parents.

In addition to the medical letters, our planner prepared a comprehensive planning statement to clarify that despite the annexe having independent facilities, it would only be used as an ancillary to the main dwelling. We had an early discussion with the case officer to explain the purpose of the annexe and the need for space. NAPC suggested using conditions to ensure that the annexe remained ancillary in the future.


Decision for the Granny Annexe in Maldon

The planning application was granted planning approval without any strict conditions, allowing our clients to provide the necessary care for their family members. Our planner, Oliver, received a glowing review from the client involved in this case, expressing their gratitude for his hard work. Our client said,

“Thank you so much, Oliver. It’s such a relief. We had a dance around the front room. Will be having a celebratory drink tonight.”

Comments like these make our job worthwhile and remind us of the positive impact we have on people’s lives.
