Lawful Development Certificates

The system of Lawful Development Certificates enables an applicant to apply to their Local Authority for a certificate confirming that an existing use or development is lawful.  They can also be used to confirm that a proposed use or development would be lawful. 

In both cases the onus is on the applicant to demonstrate the case for a Lawful Development Certificate to be granted, which is where Rob Duncan Planning Consultancy Ltd. can assist. 

We can guide you on the process and prepare a detailed statement in support of your application, drawing the Council’s attention to the key facts that support the case.
