The planning law that prevents affordable village homes.

Comment 19th July 2010

Why am I prevented from dividing my 5 bedroomed village home, which is half a mile from the curtailage of the Village?  If my home was half a mile nearer the village there wouldnt be a problem!

The house and garden are too big, now my family have left home but I love my home and my garden, why should I sell the whole house? The sensible option would be to divide into two flats or make two semi detached homes but planning law prevents this. The stupid part of this law is, if the property was a pair of  semi detached homes I could apply to make one large house and this would be approved!

Why does this matter?

There is a shortage of affordable rural and village homes and I am sure this law is partly  to blame.
