PLANNING PERMISSION HISTORY:
The chalet was constructed at a similar time to the main house and has been classed as an unauthorized development by Galway County Council in 2013 under enforcement No. EN13/166. Originally under application 06/2658 Galway County Council granted consent for a detached garage which was constructed. This was then converted into a habitable dwelling which Galway County Council refused planning for this on the grounds that it should not have been used as residential accommodation. A retention application which involves the creation of a link thus bringing the space into the main dwelling house has been granted and approved under application 1572 and is valid until May 2020 (please see details attached). PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PROPERTY WOULD NOT BE CLASSED AS PLANNING COMPLIANT UNTIL THE LINK BETWEEN THE HOUSE AND CHALET IS COMPLETED AS PER PLANNING GRANTED.
