I've got some neighbours who have decided to build a building at the top of their garden made of breeze blocks in the last week. The building must be so far about 7 1/2 foot high, 12 foot long and about 6 foot wide.
I popped round to ask them about it but only their son was in and he said it was meant to be a shed (when they already have a shed in their garden). Looks more like a out house of some sort rather than a shed. They are from india and I normally get on pretty well with them, they do have a lot of friends over and I'm concerned they are maybe moving some of them in here!!
I've emailed in to the council and my girlfriend spoke to someone there and they have not had any planning permission for this. I'm just waiting on the council coming back to me and hope they will come out to view this. I've had no letters regarding building permission. I do want to speak to the neighbours again but have not been in at the same time as they have.
They have also done all the work themselves, including some very small foundations. I'm fairly confident they are not builders.
I've attached a picture which was taken last week, since then they have increased the height of the building.
Has anyone any ideas on if they are allowed to build this? From what I've been reading, it looks like they do need planning permission? It's also only about a foot away from my fence.
Any help/advice would be great as I'm not too sure where I stand with it all.
Thanks in advance,
