Can you clarify something for me, in cases like this.
I have heard of people applying for PP to restore derelict houses, and the Planners refusing, because the use as a dwelling has been abandoned. I can find no reference to "abandonment" in my limited "library". However, a friendly Planner quoted an example where a dwelling was considered "abandoned", because the farmer had moved out, and used it as a feed store, and later as a cow shed.
In Bryn's case, if the building was last used as a dwelling, and the eco-therapist moved into the cottage, without applying for PP, is there any PLANNING reason that the Planners could use to force him out? I appreciate that Building Regs will be a different matter, but one step at a time.
