Proof of use needed for Debenham storage

PLANNERS believe there is "insufficient evidence" to back a claim that a building at Blood Hall, Kenton, near Debenham, has been used for storage purposes for a period of ten years or more.

PLANNERS believe there is "insufficient evidence" to back a claim that a building at Blood Hall, Kenton, near Debenham, has been used for storage purposes for a period of ten years or more.

David McVeigh, of Kenton Hall, who has owned it since 1986, claims it has been used by Anchor Storage Ltd from 1991, and is seeking a certificate of lawfulness.

To get the certificate, he must demonstrate on the balance of probability the building, measuring 38ft by 135ft, has been used for storage for ten years or more without interruption, and has produced invoices to back the claim.

But planners are recommending that Mid Suffolk District Council's planning control committee, which meets on Wednesday , should reject the application. It is not open for them to consider the planning merits of the case.
