Ancillary & Annex Accommodation Supplementary Guidance

Closed 11 Jun 2021

Opened 30 Apr 2021


Ancillary & Annex Accommodation is a development that is connected but sometimes physically separate from the main dwelling house. It can provide office or living space within the garden grounds of a house, allowing the occupants flexibility for home-working or visitors. It can also sometimes give families the opportunity to support relatives financially or practically whilst retaining a sense of independence.

The Ancillary & Annex Accommodation (draft) is non-statutory guidance which has been prepared to support Local Development Plan Policy 1: Placemaking. Policy 1 requires that development should contribute positively to the surrounding built & natural environment. The purpose of the guidance is to assist planners, architects and the public in applications for ancillary accommodation

Why your views matter

As part of the planning process, we consult on non-statutory guidance to allow key stakeholders and the public to help shape our advice. In this instance, we have targeted key agents and architects who have submitted applications of this nature in the last 3 years. We also welcome comments from anyone interested or involved in the planning process within Perth & Kinross Council.

The consultation will run for 6 weeks from 30 April to 11 June 2021. Following this, the responses will be analysed and responded to and the finalised guidance will be presented to Council for adoption.
