Owen Devenport were instructed to prepare an application for a Certificate of Lawful Use on a substantial barn that had been re-sited many years previous.

The client was meticulous in his detailing of the construction of the barn and it appeared to us there was a strong case for the building having been in existence in its completed state for more than 4 years.

Having collated all the information, we then liaised with a local Solicitor, who drafted a carefully worded and accurate Statutory Declaration, that set out all the details of the building works that had taken place, and so proving that the building as erected was immune from Enforcement action. A strong case was then put together by ourselves and an application was duly submitted to Denbighshire County Council which was promptly approved by the Local Planning Authority.

A delighted client no longer has to worry about possible enforcement proceedings and the barn (pictured below) is now safe from any such action.
