Bloomfields was asked to advise, following a protracted enforcement issue against the use of a farm building as a home. Approvals were sought for other development at the site and this was then traded off for a planning permission for the approval of the home previously subject to enforcement action. We see this as a particularly successful outcome to a case which our client could see no way out of following years of advice from ‘others’ and the prospect of Council court proceedings looming.
Whilst we always encourage clients to adhere to planning laws, we are proud of our ability to find solutions to enforcement related problems through strategic thinking. If you have a similar enforcement issue, why not ask us see if we can sort things out properly!
