Any extension should not move a property into a higher Council Tax band. A scan through the property pages of the local newspaper highlights the need for more houses valued at under £500k in rural communities in particular.

Smarden is a fine example of where too many replacement buildings have been of a completely different nature to the existing building. Modest, medium priced cottages have been extended or rebuilt to provide huge houses which are only affordable to a few.

HOU9 is somewhat vague. The interpretation commentary infers the permission/need for the annexe can only ever be temporary. It is not explicit within the policy wording; it must be. In reality how would any such temporary permission be policed and enforced.

Additionally, the policy needs to be s
