We are pleased to report that the planning inspectorate have recently dismissed an appeal against a planning enforcement notice on a rented property in Bournbrook. The landlord will now have 6 months to remove the offending extensions and return the property to its pre-extended state. The current tenants will have to leave the property to allow this work to take place.
Naturally we are sympathetic toward the tenants but this case does highlight the need for tenants to be wary of properties that are under enforcement orders. This appeal was brought in March so the tenants should have been made aware of the enforcement order when they agreed the let.
The extensions included a large dormer window over the rear wing of this terraced property and very large ground floor enlargements. CP4SO contributed views to the appeals process.
