Lawful development certificate for an existing use or operation or activity including those in breach of a planning condition:- Certificate of lawfulness for existing outbuildings for the care and rehabilitation of small animals including reptiles, marsupials, flightless birds and small mammals

The Council has received an application for the development described above. This is not a planning application, but an application that seeks to demonstrate that the use or the building works, as described above, are “lawful”. The applicant must show that the ‘use’ that is the subject of the application has been continuous for more than 10 years or that the ‘building works’ the subject of the application have been substantially complete for more than 4 years, prior to the date of the application. If you have any personal knowledge of how long the use has been carried on and whether the character of the use has changed at all, or, in the case of building works, when those works were completed, the Council would like to hear from you. As this is not a planning application, I must emphasise that the Council is not considering the planning merits of the case. The Council therefore cannot take into account in determining this type of application, whether the use or the building work the subject of the application is, or is not, acceptable, it is purely a legal judgement based on the evidence.
