Planning History

Prior notification approval was provided by Maidstone Borough Council ref: 14/506460/PNJCLA dated 9th February 2015 (now lapsed) for change of use of the building to fall within use Class C3 (dwelling houses) (seven units).

Prior to this a certificate of lawful use was issued by Maidstone Borough Council ref: MA/13/1187 dated 28th August 2013 for residential use of the building.

Planning Permission was granted on appeal dated 27th April 1990 following a planning application to Maidstone Borough Council ref: MA/88/1612E for the erection of a large two storey extension at the rear of the premises to provide additional office space, subject to conditions.

A copy of a letter from Maidstone Borough Council dated 9th July 2002 is available which confirms that the excavations for the link block and the foundation concrete were inspected in 1995.

A copy of the planning documents will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or the Local Planning Authority website.
