  • My name is Joy Atkinson and I own The Studio 34a Plassey Street Penarth.
  • I purchased The Studio in 2013 and have been applying for planning to become residential since then.
  • I pay council tax.
  • I have improved the frontage by spending £1,000 on a gate for my neighbours.
  • My neighbours have no objections to my living at The Studio.
  • I have applied once and it was refused, am now applying with adapted plans rectifying the Councils' issues.
  • Penarth Town Council approved the original application, but are now refusing the amended application that adheres to the Vale's requests.
  • I have gone through the proper channels (although I was advised to live here for four years to 'keep my head down' then it would have been automatically residential!) doing what I thought to be the right thing.
  • Still the Vale of Glamorgan want me out by September '16 even with the housing situation as it is and the fact that they would be forfeit the council tax for this property.
  • I moved here to be near my Daughter and Grandchild now Grandchildren as Daughter has recently had twins, so no room there.
  • Nearly all my money went on purchasing The Studio. I wouldn't be able to get much of my money back if I sold or indeed could sell The Studio to buy elsewhere. I don't earn enough to pay rent and live! Making me HOMELESS!!


Thank you for reading and hopefully sharing. If anyone has any ideas as to what I can do I would be very grateful. Never having been or know anyone who has been in this situation before I am really out of my depth here! Thanks again Joy
