Certificate of Lawfulness Issued in National Park


Throughout 2014 Kedrick Davies (Director) has been acting for an old client of CDN’s: the West Wales Muzzle Loaders and Rifle Association. This followed on from CDN securing various planning permissions for their premises and ranges back in the 1990s.

Following enquiries from the enforcement officers of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Kedrick advised the Association on the best way to resolve potential issues and subsequently led negotiations and discussions with the Authority. Using evidence in the form of written witness statements and old log books, Kedrick applied to the Authority for a Certificate of Lawfulness for the use of land as a rifle range in breach of a condition attached to a previous planning permission.

After discussions with the relevant officers at the Authority, the Certificate was issued in September 2014.
