Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Summons Served on Owner of Illegal Building

The owner of 16b Hawthorn Road who erected a large building in his garden without planning permission has finally been served with a summons. The owner has been told he must demolish the building but has failed to do so, and sought to stall the process by submitting new planning applications at the last minute. Colin Richard & I have received complaints from nearby residents about the structure and having become increasingly frustrated by this man’s flouting of the law we urged the planning department to take strong action. The court hearing is set for 11th September.


News Update: the hearing has been adjourned to 25th September to enable the defendants to obtain legal advice.

News Update: The matter went before the court on 25th September 2008 and was again adjourned as the defendants still did not have legal advice and one of the defendants was unable to attend court due to illness. The matter is now due to be heard on 16th October 2008.
