Public Inquiry Enforcement Planning Appeal:
London Borough of Brent
Appeal Allowed and Enforcement Notice Quashed for eight self-contained flats
The client contacted while on holiday regarding an enforcement notice that had been served on their property. The notice alleged that the conversion into 8 flats had taken place within the last 4 years and that the property should be converted back into a single-family dwelling-house.
We were instructed by the client to lodge an appeal after which we set about collating evidence that the property had been used on a continual basis as 8 flats for at least 4 years prior to the issue of the enforcement notice.
A combination of evidence was used including tenancy agreements, utility bills, statutory declarations, land registry details etc.
MZA presented the case at Public Inquiry and were successful in convincing the Inspector to quash the Enforcement Notice and grant planning permission.
The client was allowed to keep the property as 8 flats.
