Tetlow King Planning successfully negotiated an extension to a Ground G compliance period for two holiday chalets occupied as permanent residential accommodation on the edge of a Somerset village, famous for its cheese.
An enforcement notice had been issued and appeals submitted on behalf of the six appellants. Evidence was prepared in the Grounds of Appeal that the compliance period of six months was insufficient to allow for the two families to find suitable alternative accommodation in the area within the prescribed time.
Following the submission of this evidence the Council accepted the arguments in support of extending the period of compliance to 12 months and issued a revised letter advising that under Section 173A(1)(a) and Section 173 (9) of the Act the Council had extended the period for compliance of the enforcement order to 12 months.
The appeals were withdrawn.
