Description: Currently trading as a guest house, planning permission was granted in Jan 2021 to become a residential house . The permission states that the dwellinghouse hereby permitted shall not be occupied otherwise than by a person as his or her Only or Principal Home, or the widow or widower of such a person and any dependents of such a person living with him or her. The Occupant will supply to the Local Planning Authority (within 14 days of the Local Planning Authority’s written request so to do) such information as the Authority may reasonably require in order to determine whether this condition is being observed. An ‘Only or Principal Home’ is a dwellinghouse which is occupied continuously for a minimum period of six months in every twelve month period. For the avoidance of doubt the dwelling shall not be occupied as a second home or for holiday letting accommodation
