Description of Breach

 

 

 

22/00069/COUGEN

Complaints had been received that the flat above the White Lion Public House, 20 Lower Farnham Road, Aldershot was being advertised as available for rent independently from the Public House in May 2022. This was evidenced on a site visit in June 2022 and followed up with a number of letters were sent to the owner with no response. A Planning Contravention Notice (PCN) was issued on 4 August which was returned completed on 8 September. This confirmed that the first-floor flat was being occupied by tenants under a six-month shorthold tenancy agreement with the owner as the landlord. The PCN confirmed that there had been a breach of planning control as the first-floor flat was ancillary to the Public House, and not an independent dwelling (Use Class C3).

 

Planning Application 22/00159/FULPP for a rear first floor extension and change of use of the flat into an independent dwelling had been refused in April 2022, therefore, instructions had been issued to the Corporate Manager, Legal to draft and serve the notices in this respect.
