Successful planning appeal

O’Callaghan Planning has just received a Certificate of Lawfulness, upon an appeal to the Planning Appeals Commission, after successfully arguing that the appellant had failed to comply with a condition attached to a previous planning permission for a continuous / unbroken period of five years. Had the planning authority earlier¬†been aware¬†that the condition was in breach, the landowner would likely have received a Breach of Condition Notice. There is no right to an appeal against a Breach of Condition Notice, and O’Callaghan Planning would therefore remind all intending developers to adhere to the terms of planning approvals lest they run the risk of subsequent enforcement action.
