LOCAL AUTHORITY Cotswold District Council
OUR REF: PAULA KISTER/190412/TET/13348
AGENTS NOTE Under the terms of Section 157 of the Housing Act 1985, as this property is ex local authority and situated in an area of outstanding beauty, Cotswold District Council must give consent for the sale. If the buyers have lived or worked in the Gloucestershire area for the last 3 years, consent is automatically given. However, if the buyers are from outside the county, the council's consent is discretionary and any application is determined by the Portfolio Holder after consultation with Ward Councillors. In this way the council tries to ensure that prospective buyers coming into the area will use the property as their only home, and not as weekend or holiday accommodation. All properties within an area of outstanding natural beauty are required to be marketed locally for a minimum period of 4 weeks before an application for consent by a buyer from outside the county can be considered.
