We posted recently about a pre purchase building survey we carried out in a building at Dungeness, that post caught the eye or Google search of another prospective purchaser and we have recently been back on Dungeness Estate surveying again. What seems to be a common them is desire to improve or replace the buildings that are there and we always send clients back to speak to the planning department at the local authority – in this case Shepway – to discuss what planning permission or consent may be granted for.
We thought it would be useful to link to the draft guidance on the Shepway Planning website which gives an overview of the councils approach to planning, redevelopment and renewal in or on Dungeness:
The full local plan covering the Built Environment and the Conservation Area Appraisal are available on Shepway Councils website
Whatever you do, take professional advice. There are very few normal buildings in Dungeness, with modern alternates like the rubber house rubbing alongside old huts made of railway carriages, sticky tape, asbestos and lard. OK not lard but you get the idea, if you need a survey get in touch with us we will be pleased to help!
