Dorset Council: Jess Glover is pleased to announce that she has secured a lawful development certificate for the siting of a twin-unit caravan for incidental use in association with existing dwellinghouse on Ringwood Road, Three Legged Cross, Wimborne.

The site is within the East Dorset Green Belt, in a semi-rural setting and accommodates a detached chalet bungalow set in a larger plot. The applicant approached Pure Town Planning as they sought to site a twin-unit caravan on their property for their elderly in-laws.

As part of the submission, we were required to demonstrate that the twin-unit caravan would meet the definition of a caravan as defined in Section 29(1) of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act (1960) and Section 13 of the Caravan Sites Act (1968) as amended. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the caravan would be ancillary to the use of the main dwellinghouse and would therefore not result in the creation of a new planning unit on the site.

The application was approved as the LPA agreed that there would be no material change of use of the land and the proposed siting of the caravan is within the curtilage of the dwelling, therefore it was considered lawful.

If you would like the professional opinion on works to your property then why not call Pure Town Planning on 01202 585524 or email to find out how we can help you.
