I've a neighbour put in for planning for 2 new properties next door. He's a right of access over the driveway but I own it. He's included the drive in his application and it's all looking very landscaped. He's had a word today asking for my full name as he's realized his architects made a mistake and has to serve me with a section b (I think) notice.
I'm not sure what that now means? Once this has been served can he continue with the landscaping my drive as set out in his plans? I've remained neutral to his planning, I want to see how it goes for him first and maybe then submit my own, but if anyone is going to 'do up' the road I'd like it to be to my taste and not his 'glitzy lit up like a christmas tree ideas'. Cheers all.

It sounds like what he is doing is not serving you with a notice, but getting your details as he needs to apply under "section b" which means the form he sends to the planners to say he doesn't own all the land to which the application applies. There is no legal requirement for anyone to own the land they apply for pp on.

He should have given you notice saying that an application has been made.

Then....sit tight. If he gets it chances are he will need access improvement. Then it's time to turn the screw.

Surely it's your drive?

Anyone can make a planning application on anyone elses land as long as they are correctly notified, in this case a Certificate B notification.
Obtaining planning permission doesn't give them any rights to do the work and as it's your land you can be as awkward as you like as to how much you let them implement.

I've had advice with regards how many properties he can access and it doesn't actually state it's just one.
I suppose his application looks good as he includes the drive and makes the frontage to his look much bigger giving it more chance of a pass.
I'll sit tight and see what happens.
Cheers all.

I live in a Farm Managers dwelling (AOC) whats the possiblity of adding a sun lounge to the front of the house. From what I gather Permitted development is not allowed with Aoc, this would have been the easiest route.

We’ve got a run down bungalow on the farm, built on the cheap about 25years ago and has been empty for the last 4. Builder is recommending pushing it off foundations and starting again as it would be about the same money to renovate it. Do we need planning for this as we are re building on the existing footings and just to the original height? It’s ag tied if that makes a difference.

Yes you would, it would be a demo and rebuild. I would be cautious of going down this route if it has an AOC and has been empty for 4 years as you may not be granted planning permission as the 'need' is no longer there.
Might be a better route to try and get the AOC removed and then apply for demo and rebuild.

Thanks I thought that might be the case. How far could we go under permitted? I.e new roof and rebuilding at least one exterior wall?
