We’re pleased to announce that we recently secured Granny Annexe Planning Permission in Kent, from Ashford Borough Council.
The NAPC Approach for Granny Annexe Planning Permission
To increase the chances of success, we took a dual application approach, submitting a Householder Planning application and a Certificate of Lawfulness to the Local Planning Authority (LPA). The application for the granny annexe planning permission in Kent was submitted in early November, and just over a month later, we had a decision. Ashford Borough Council expedited the process, making a quicker call than the usual 8-week timeframe.
Different LPAs have different timelines, but our application’s success was largely due to solid plans, drawings, and a robust planning statement. These demonstrated the application’s acceptability and compliance with mobile home legislation. We presented a strong argument for our client, helping the LPA make a swift decision.
The importance of a strong submission for Granny Annexe Planning Permission
This case underscores the importance of supporting applications with clear documentation. Well-supported applications save the LPA time, avoiding back-and-forth questions and speeding up the decision. If an application lacks proper support, it’s likely to face delays or even rejection.
At NAPC, we always back our applications with necessary documents and anticipate LPA questions. In this case the application was approved in half the usual time, due to our proactive approach. Another satisfied client now has the green light for their mobile home.
