Enforcement - CE/5892 - 136 Perne Road

Decision Maker: Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received an application for planning enforcement action to be taken.


Address: 136 Perne Road, Cambridge.


Details of breach of planning control: Material change of use of the land for stationing of mobile home.


On 11 September 2014 East Area Committee authorised the service of an enforcement notice for the creation of a separate residential planning unit and the stationing of a mobile home for permanent residential use at 136 Perne Road.


On appeal the Inspector found the enforcement notice to be flawed and invited the City Council to withdraw the notice and reissue it under s. 171B (4)(b) TCPA 1990.


Mr Sanderson made a written representation pre-committee that was included in the Planning Amendment Sheet.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to accept the officer recommendation that the planning committee:

  i.  Note the use of urgency powers to withdraw the old enforcement notice.

  ii.  Confirm the authorisation to draft and serve an enforcement notice in respect of the breach of planning control described in this report and as more fully set out in the East Area Committee Report of the 11 September 2014 adopting the following wording suggested by the Inspector: ‘Without planning permission, the material change of use of the land to a mixed use comprising a single dwellinghouse and land used for purposes incidental thereto and use for the stationing of a mobile home occupied as a separate unit of residential accommodation’.

  iii.  Confirm the reference to the ten year limitation period for taking enforcement action in the statement of reasons.
