Self Contained Residential Annexes
These are sometimes referred to as granny annexes. Typically they are house extensions for relatives to live with their family but with a degree of independence. Such annexes would only be granted permission when they would clearly be subordinate in scale to the existing dwelling. If this were not the case, the proposals would be rather like creating another dwelling on the same site.
Annexes should be designed so that they will be capable of being fully integrated within the existing dwelling. This can be achieved in a number of ways. The entrance to the annexe should be via the entrance to the main dwelling, a separate entrance at the front elevation will not normally be acceptable.
The accommodation should be linked internally to the main dwelling and should be designed in such a manner as to easily enable the annexe to be later used as an integral part of the main dwelling.
