Regarding the law passed by Sep 2020 – The Town and Country Planning (Permitted Development and Miscellaneous Amendments) (England) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 (S.I., 2020, No. 632)
Without planning permission, the freeholder can add two stories onto existing blocks of three stories or more. What are our options to fight this absurd gift to freeholders?
For leasholders it will mean –
– Massive disruption
– Devalued apartments below
– Penthouses devalued
– Reports already of subsidence and leaks
– Parking and refuse issues
I haven’t read much here on this subject so could the leaseholders:
– Form a Right To Manage, meaning the freeholder’s agent (our RTM co.) is now working against the plans?
– Appoint a New Manager – requires only 1 leasholder to action this – and again stymie the plans? Until Labour – who object to this law – might gain power?
– Our existing lease does not allow any renewals so does this overrule the planning freedom?
They can’t enhance the car park in any way as per the lease so parking restrictions could bring success in a planning objection?
