Do I need Planning Permission – Replace Cottage in Conservation Area
A wooden cottage has stood on .4 of an acre of land in a Conservation Area for nearly 70 years. This cottage has now deteriorated to the point of collapse and is in effect an eyesore.
The owners would like to simply replace the cottage with a wooden lodge type build on the exact same footings as original. It is understood that they may allow a 10-20% increase in footings, if desired.
As the cottage has stood for 70 years…is it subject to “planning permission” rules.
Can we simply replace like for like. Thereby enhancing the Conservation Area for future generations.
