SUTTON LBC GO TO INQUIRY OVER TREE HOUSE

Sutton LBC are involved in a planning inquiry to decide whether alterations to a tree house in a private back garden contravene planning rules, the Evening Standard reports (p21).

The problem developed when the homeowner added a wooden roof and cladding to the structure and neighbours objected. The council ordered the new additions should be removed after they had received the complaints.

However, the man who owns the property says most of the existing structure was in place for over four years and the development is therefore exempt from town planning legislation.

An environment department spokesman said: 'There are many different situations that planning inquiries must look at, but this must be one of the more unusual ones', the paper reports.
