    Couple of years back, we constructed an ancillary outbuilding at the end of our garden. The outbuilding is predominately used for playing games/social get-together.
    Due to recent family bereavement we have our elderly in-law living with us.
    We would like to convert our outbuilding (PP/BC) to GA to accommodate MiL. Fortunately, the outbuilding has a separate room and toilet/shower, seems we just need to install a kitchenette for it to become self-contained annex.
    Do we need to apply for PP or it would be best to go direct to BC for change of use?

    cheers
    p.s i am unable to post above in the Building Regulations and Planning Permission forum, keep getting error message.

    Called our council and they asked me to write to BC explaining what needs to be done, the person answered the phone didn’t think i need PP as the outbuilding already granted one.

    I have dropped an email to BC explaining the current situation.

    Normally they would want to put conditions on the use, to stop a granny being shipped out to a home and 20 Romanians shipped in.

    The existing permission would not normally say it can be used as residential accomodation, but I suppose it will be in the detail.

    Bit confusing?

    You need to check the decision document as Woody said if you already applied and had granted planning permission. If you had an 'ancillary outbuilding' approved (as per your original post) you're going to need permission to use it for a non ancillary use.

    If you didnt have permssion because you built it under PD as an ancillary outbuilding, then you'll need permission to use it for a non ancillary use

    Admittedly, I'd have to look that up - but I think anti-ageing cream is one of their's - so a godsend for the likes of us.
