Detached Garage for Residential Property, Warwickshire

Our client approached us following a planning refusal which had been submitted by another agent. The property was a detached cottage set close to the back of the highway. The cottage was located in the Green Belt and had permission for extensions which had already been built. The client had a garage which was attached to the dwelling, however this proved difficult for the disabled owners to use and they wanted to convert this into a ground floor bedroom for their changing needs. Due to the garage position being close to the highway, there was limited space in front for cars to pull off the highway and this had resulted in the Highway Authority objecting to the proposal.

The refused application was for a detached garage to be located in the garden to the side of the property and for the conversion of the original garage. There was no restriction on the original garage, therefore this could be converted without the need for planning permission. The refused detached garage had been positioned closer to the highway than the front of the house and therefore required planning permission.

We were instructed to carry out a measured site survey with levels, to facilitate a proposal that would fall within the Permitted Development Rights of this property. We proposed a layout which set the garage sideways on to the dwelling with a drive way in front of it allowing vehicles to pull off the highway completely and still leave room for the garage doors to be open. The proposed garage was also set back behind the front line of the dwelling and was no closer to the highway than the original house. The planning application was submitted for a Certificate of Lawful Use or Development and the certificate was subsequently granted.
