Policy HOU9 - Standalone Annexes (MC53)

Page 181 Policy HOU9 Para 5.82

Response to rep 1452

Modification to paragraph 5.82 under Annexes as follows:

Standalone annexes will be supported where it can be demonstrated that there is a need for such a facility - for example to provide a home for elderly or infirm relatives unable to live independently, or for staff accommodation and that the standalone annex is sited appropriately and that it has a real and functional relationship between the occupation of the main dwelling and the annexe. It is unlikely that a standalone annex located outside the curtilage of the main dwelling, or without a demonstrable functional relationship with the main dwelling, will be supported in principle.
