Hi, We have got a case
whereby permission was granted to convert a garage to
ancillary residential accommodation and an annex exemption
was granted. All relevant paperwork has been submitted to date
(Form 2, form 8 and form 6). The development commenced in Feb
2021 and at present it hasn't completed.
They have now submitted an
application to change the use from ancillary accommodation to
a separate dwelling. Obviously this is CIL Liable in it's own
right, and they won't be able to deduct the existing
floorspace as it hasn't lawfully been in use yet as it is not
complete, however, could this be classed as a disqualifying
event under Regulation 42C and therefore have to pay the CIL charge?
If anyone has any experience
of a similar case or if you have any thoughts, it would be
great to hear from you.
