DM:43 Residential annexes

KSPC supports this policy in principle but considers that it needs strengthening to prevent potential abuse.  There are many “granny annexes” which are commercially let despite planning conditions which supposedly prevent this, as there appears to be little or no monitoring of compliance with such conditions.  The opportunity to reduce such abuse should be taken. The policy should clearly state that the purpose of such extensions excludes commercial letting, which is entirely possible even if the annex is “an integral part of the house”.
