We were approached by clients’ who owned a small property near Llanrwst, Conwy, which was originally granted permission for conversion into a holiday letting unit in 2013. However, having completed another conversion nearby they had discovered that the holiday letting income was too low to support another conversion and so on the recommendation of their Commercial Estate Agent they sought advice from us on removing the condition.
We liaised with their Agent, Richard Baddeley, to undertake extensive marketing efforts to comply with Conwy’s policy on such cases, with these demonstrating that there were no interests from any buyer in the use of the building either a holiday letting unit or for other commercial purposes. Therefore, we sought to remove this condition in order to allow use of the building as a standard dwelling. The scheme was soon granted planning permission and so our clients’ may now use the building as a normal dwelling, and hope to complete conversion soon and move into the property.
