Mobile home for Annex accepted as Lawful in residential garden
A Lawful Development Certificate has confirmed the proposed stationing of a mobile home in a residential garden for use as an Annex.
A mobile home that is within specified size limits is classified as a Caravan.
The stationing of a caravan within a residential curtilage does not require planning permission. Use of the caravan as an integral part of the use as a single dwellinghouse and for purposes incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse to provide additional living accommodation for family members forming part of the single household also does not require planning permission
The Council concluded that the stationing of a caravan within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse for any purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse does not constitute development by virtue of section 55(2)(d) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and granted the Lawful Development Certificate.
