My 20 year old son has been building me a summer house/shed. My neighbours were aware of this. things were going well with it. He had completed the shell. But as soon as he put the Tyvek on it i had a visit from my neighbour only to be told she had reported me to the local council telling them that it was blocking her light. "nothing to do with the 30 foot trees we have at the back of us" !!!
This caused the counil to come round who then said they were sending the enforcement officer round. He has come round and has said that i have two choices. The roof is to high by 400mm. I can drop the roof and carry on or I can apply for planning permission and be granted it. I have gone for the "planning permission"
I recieved the planning forms and filled them in the best I could. I have now had it all back and they have told me that it is invalid and returned it for the following reasons.
there are 3 things that need doing.
1. I submitted a picture with the dimensions, they have said its not sufficiant. I need to do a floor plan and front, side, side and rear evaluation. I have tried find help on the internet to do this but realy dont know what i am doing.
2. A location plan is required scaled 1.1250. Where would i get this from
3. Certificate B needs to be completed with notice to be served with the artical 11 form on the local housing office. when i tried to do this with my local housing they declined to take it and did not know anything about the forms. I handed it into the main council offices.
Please please please i realy need help with all this, I seem to be banging my head against a brick wall with council and planning :(
you need to buy a scale rule at your local stationary suppliers and draw the plans with the diamensions from a birds eye view perspective. You need to include,the finished diamensions of the building including window and door sizes and measure where its situated from the house,to scale Clearly measure the distance from your boundry use a compass and write which elevation is facing north,south etc Draw the base plan (birds eye view) draw each face of the building and include the finish,wood exterior,plaster etc specify the foundation thickness you used and discribe the materials you are using to build it. Include the tree species and the height on your boundry
