Is it ok to rent out a bungalow with an agricultural occupancy condition as a holiday let?
technically no ,but has the condition been adhered to upto now or has it been in breach before
It has been in the past rented out as a holiday let
if you want to remove the condition the breach has to be continuous for 10 years
I think the 'official' answer is no, but maybe nobody will notice or complain?
It is not illegal to breach a planning condition. You would not be breaking the law. I you were to change the use for 10 years and didn't come under enforcement, you have a very good case for a certificate of lawfulness for change of use.
If you want to add real value to it, go for 6 month lets and then get the tie lifted after 10 years. Then you have a full occupancy house. Less short term income but doing a holiday let will end you up with a holiday let, not a house and it's value will still be far lower than a house with full occupancy rights. Also a holiday let may attract more attention? Depends on how nosy they neighbours are and where it is.
Whatever you do, keep loads of proof of bookings / lettings/ adverts etc. from day 1 as you may need evidence when you go for a certificate of lawfulness down the line.
As above - depends what your LA is like - if they havent the funds or cant be bothered to take any action then just do it.
Get yourself on the local parish council and you can get away with anything!!!! Or maybe that just works with my local one
They got to "declare an interest " legally if anything involved in !!!
YES maybe if "persons involved in Agriculture ,fishery or forestry " having a break ???
That's bollokks to be honest. You get paid nothing, give up loads of your free time, have no power to do anything and are under never ending scrutiny from every cretin who is watching your every move.. Go try it and see how many of these famous brown envelopes you get. I suspect not many. I expect none. Most of us want to help but it doesn't stop a constant stream of strokers making out that we are in it for the money or some personal benefit. Nobody is above the law, least of all parish Councillors.
One rule for them but they can jump on the rest. More retrospective planning by our parish council members than the rest of the parish put together and that's only IF they are caught!!!
It's not illegal to breach planning regs and it's not illegal to submit a retrospective application if required. It is illegal to breach an enforcement order. The same thing applies to you.
Just "talking shop" and no powers !
LA don't even agree with them most of the time.
Just mainly "busy bodies " poking into stuff that "don't concern them !
You could say that or you could say that a lot of rural people who have no idea how to get a message to their district / county cllr rely on these people who give their time for nothing. Be assured they are the first to shout when it all goes tits up. Then suddenly we are important. Anyway, I guess you have your mind set and maybe have had bad experiences so I'm sorry about that. I consider myself a useful and realistic cllr.
Been there done that .
Is good and bad points but often "certain characters" rule the roast and "dictate " to rest !
