Certificate of Lawful Use to retain existing facilities at retirement village

Certificate of Lawful Use Issued – An application for the retention and continued use of the caravan storage and maintenance yard at The Elms, Torksey has been agreed by the LPA (05/08/2022).  Great news for our clients, park home and leisure operators Cove Communities, who acquired the site earlier this year.

A Certificate of Lawful Use can be sought where land or buildings have been continuously used for a specified purpose over sustained period of time – and if a robust, well-evidence case is presented, the Council will issue a formal notice to confirm that the use is lawful under s191 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990. Location: The Elms Retirement Village, Torksey, Lincoln
