I have lived at a run down property site for over 10 years in a static caravan which was brought onto site at that time, the main property on the site has never been lived in as in need of renovation.......
I know that the static caravan should be allowed on site with no planning as its within the curtilage of the main property, providing that it is not used independently as a dwelling........
My question is that, as I have lived in the static caravan (mobile home) for over 10 years independently of the main dwelling which has had no occupation in the 10+ years, am I within my rights to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate in order to keep this static caravan as a completely independent unit of occupation?
In addition, if this being the case, I assume would allow replacement in the future of the mobile home up to the max allowed dimensions of 60' x 20'?
Appreciate your feedback,
