I've recently moved house (yay big garage) and I have / had a nice open view to the front. It's why I bought the place.
There were no planning applications to worry about in the searches.
The vendors filled out the form thing saying they weren't aware of any active planning permissions.
Yesterday we got up at 7 to find construction starting of a 7m high barn immediately opposite. Joy!
Apparently the vendors were on the consultation group for the application. Hmmm!
I have approached my solicitor to find out what action can be taken and what the costs of this action will be.
Any advice around this part??
There are also some oddities with the planning application when we found it.
It was initially rejected in March based on being it being an agricultural building on equestrian land. The lady who owned the land let someone graze sheep in the field for a few weeks to get the use of the land changed to agricultural. The sheep have long gone and its not all horse grazing again! The planning application was reissued in an identical way and was accepted. The building is not being built in the materials listed on the plan and in a slightly different position. We have a complaint in about this. I suspect that all we can do around this is make noise and cause a fuss. Anyone got any advice on anything that may be effective?
